Legal document. In Arabic script. Approximately the 17 bottom lines are preserved, densely and neatly written. Dating: at least twice mentions 18 Shaʿbān 421 AH = 21 August 1030 CE; also refers to an earlier document dated Jumādā I 421 AH. Involves the qāʾid Yumn al-Dawla Abū l-ʿAlāʾ Saʿāda al-Ẓāhirī (could be identical with the governor of the citadel of Aleppo by this name several years earlier, mentioned by Ibn al-ʿAdīm, see https://shamela.ws/book/9872/113). He pays the 10 2/3 dinars which he owes to Abū ʿUbaydallāh ʿAbdallāh b. Aḥmad b. ʿAbdallāh b. Yaḥyā al-Ḥasanī(?) for (rent for?) a period of one year (this is the year beginning 18 Shaʿbān 421 AH), and receives a release in return. Both four and seven lines from the bottom, Abū ʿUbaydallāh ʿAbdallāh is named together with (his sister?) Fāṭima (واقر كل واحد من ابو عبيد الله عبد الله وفاطمة ابن احمد . . . ). Reused on recto for Hebrew literary text. There are pinpricks all along the edges of the paper. Merits further examination. ASE
