<p style='text-align: justify;'>Agreement between a husband (Abū Manṣūr Ibn Qasāsā) and wife, in the hand of Halfon b. Manasseh ha-Levi. Ibn Qasāsā divests himself of responsibility for his wife’s possessions, and the wife is granted the right to dispose of her dowry (excluding silverware and jewellery) as she sees fit and to purchase real estate, because of insecure times, and because she is ‘trustworthy’. The other conditions of the marriage contract remain in force. Ca. 1120s CE. Also mentions Abū l-Ḵayr b. Ḥafāṭ. The wife (Sitt al-Ḥusn) is also known from another later manuscript (Bodl. MS Heb. e 98, f. 63, dated 1138 CE), in which she is described as the widow of Ibn Qasāsā upon her remarriage. By this time (apparently soon after the death of Ibn Qasāsā) Sitt al-Ḥusn had a minor son and the ownership of a store near her house.</p>
