Cairo Genizah : Legal document

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: note certifying that a promissory note by Manasseh b. David Ṣayrafī to Judah b. Joseph known as Ibn Janūnī (גגוני) had been correctly copied in order to be sent to Egypt. Verso: note in Judaeo-Arabic saying ‘Please forward to Nahray b. Nissim’. These three men are well-known figures from mid-11th century Egypt. In T-S 24.18 and 12.634 (dated 1055 CE) it is explained that both Judah and Manasseh died and Ibn Janūnī’s heirs instructed Nahray to sue Manasseh’s heirs for the amount owed. This document may have been sent to Nahray as supporting evidence for the claim.</p>
