Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: liturgical text in Hebrew. Verso: part of a deed of sale in which Maḵlūf b. Jābir b. Nāṣir buys a house in al-Muʿizziyya (Cairo) from […] b. ʿAlī b. Ḥusayn b. Ibrahim b. ʿAlī, one of two trustees of Cairene legacies, under the supervision of Abū l-Ḥasan Masarra b. ʿAbdallāh. Maḵlūf’s father, Jābir b. Nāṣir, the miller, acts as his agent in the transaction. The house previously belonged to the wife of the Amir, Sitt al-Dawla, and is apparently now intestate, hence the involvement of the trustees. Ca. 11th-12th century.</p>
