Cairo Genizah : Legal document

Daniel b. ʿAzariah (Nasi)

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: fragment from a power of attorney in which Abraham b. Isaac appoints Ephraim b. Moses the physician, to collect a debt owed to him by Yefet b. Ṯābit in Fusṭāṭ. Dated Thursday, 6th Marḥešvan 1368 (= 1056 CE), in Ramla. Witnessed by Ḥayyim he-Ḥaver b. Solomon, Joshua b. Abraham, Isaac b. Ezra, Yešuʿa ha-Kohen ha-Parnas b. Ṣedaqa, Solomon b. Jacob, and Boaz the cantor b. David. Following the signatures of the witnesses, all six signatures are validated in an attestation from the court of Daniel (b. ʿAzariah), ha-Nasi, Head of the Yešiva of the Pride of Jacob. It appears the power of attorney was written by a court scribe, while the attestation was written by Daniel himself. Verso: two unrelated lines in Arabic script. </p>
