<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: legal document concerning an agreement reached between a husband and wife, dated Kislev 14[..] (11th century) in Egypt. The couple agree to nullify their divorce and renew their marriage contract. A condition had been imposed on the wife, and failure to fulfil it would lead to divorce, without the right to collect what was due to her in her ketubba. It is also agreed that if the husband’s complaints are verified, she will be excommunicated. Signed by Nathan ha-Kohen b. Solomon and Judah b. Solomon. Verso: end of a court record regarding the marriage of Karaite woman and a Rabbanite groom (perhaps the couple on recto?). The wife agrees not to force her husband to eat meat other than that slaughtered according to Rabbanite tradition, and to allow him to keep Rabbanite festivals. It is signed by ʿEli ha-Kohen the Cantor b. Ezekiel ha-Kohen he-Ḥaver in the [Great Sanhedrin] (mid-11th century).</p>
