<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: letter in the form of a deed, from the court of, and probably written by, Ephraim b. Šemarya, in Fusṭāṭ, dated Elul 1361 (= 1050 CE). The woman Mulūk bat Neḥūma b. Wahb, wife of Joseph the scribe b. Manasseh (known as Ibn al-ʿAnnī), brings three witnesses to confirm that she has sole right to the estate of her father’s cousin Ṭībān b. Maḥfūẓ al-Qūmmī (i.e. from Qom in Iran), who had died in Aleppo, and left his cousin, her father, as his sole heir and, since her brother Wahb, who had been a banker, had died in Fayyūm, she remains the sole heir to the estates of both her father and his cousin. Witnessed by Menaḥem the teacher b. Solomon, ʿAzariah b. Menaḥem b. Mevoraḵ, and Jacob b. David. Verso: part of an unrelated Arabic text. </p>
