Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Legal document from Alexandria, probably in the hand of the late 11th-century court clerk Mawhūb b. Aaron. A father gives an entire house to his son Jacob, who was borne to him by his wife Rafiʿa. No doubt the lost part of the document contained a declaration by Rafiʿa granting her husband free access to her property.</p>
