Cairo Genizah : Legal document; jottings

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: part of a legal document containing the attestation of the Bet Din, in the hand of the scribe Ḥalfon b. Manasseh (1100-1138 CE). One of the parties is Peraḥya ha-Kohen. Witnessed by Obadiah b. Aaron he-Ḥaver, Yešuʿa ha-Levi b. Ṣedaqa ha-Levi, ʿEli b. Yešuʿa, and Menaḥem b. Samuel. A calendrical work for the years 1142-1161 CE found in T-S AS 144.94 was written for Obadiah b. Aaron he-Ḥaver, so this document should probably be dated to the latter part of Ḥalfon b. Manasseh’s career as court scribe. Verso: pen trials in Arabic.</p>
