Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Fragment from a deed of purchase, in which Mevasser the scribe b. Šela al-ʿAmtānī, and his wife Ḡāliyā (of Baniyas) b. Assalīmūn (of Dalāta, i.e. Dalūn), grant a right to Isaac b. Jacob he-Ḥaver, and his mother, Salma b. Yefet ha-Kohen (note use of a different ink, and perhaps a different hand, suggesting that originally a space was left and the mother’s name was added later), on account of a deposit being paid. Dated Thursday, 27th day of the month, 4805 (= 1045 CE), in Jerusalem. Witnessed by Elijah ha-Kohen, ‘fourth in the Academy, son of a Gaʾon’, and Solomon ‘the lesser, Head of the Yešiva of the Pride of Jacob’. </p>
