<p style='text-align: justify;'>Exemplar marriage contract reflecting a mixture of styles and influences (including some Palestinian features: dating according to the creation of the world, proposal formula with first person declaration and volition clause). The list of the husband’s obligations is typical of Fusṭāṭ and reflects Babylonian influence, while the wife’s obligation formula ends with an expression of Palestinian origin. Although an exemplar, the scribe probably used his name as the name of the groom, Saʿadya the cantor b. Sedaqa the cantor (a cantor, judge and scribe in Minyat Ziftā) and the name of his wife, ʿAzūz bat Isaac, as the name of the bride. Ca. first half of the 12th century.</p>
