Cairo Genizah : Legal document

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Court record, in which Nahum b. Abraham b. Nehemiah declares that he possesses nine qiraṭs of a house in Fusṭāṭ in Qaṣr al-Šamʿ (the other owners are Zūrʿa b. ʿAmram and Ḥiba bat Hilāl al-Levi b. Jābir, wife of Abū Isaac b. … b. Nehemiah). Nahum agrees that he will not sell his share of the house to the apothecary Joseph al-Kohen. Also mentions the house of the community leader Abū ʿAli Ḥasan al-Baḡdādī. Dated Wednesday 11th Kislev 1062 of the Seleucid Era (i.e. 750 CE). This date is in error, and the scribe likely omitted ‘300’, making the date 1362 (i.e. 1050 CE). Signed by Samuel b. Abraham, Sar Šalom b. Joseph, Isaac b. Hillel, and Isaac b. Ḵalaf.</p>
