Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: legal document in which Abū Manṣūr Ḥayyim b. Sahlwiyya appoints Abū Yūsuf Yaʿqūb b. Šaʿyā known as Ibn Tawazī to investigate the accounts relating to the legacy of Abū Kaṯīr Ibrahīm b. Salmān b. Ezra. Abū Kaṯīr had died having left certain assets with two brothers of Abū Manṣūr. These brothers had also just died, and Abū Manṣūr their heir. Abū Yūsuf’s role will be to examine the accounts of the three dead men so that Abū Kaṯīr’s heirs can receive anything due to them. Abū Yūsuf’s investigation will be supervised by Abū Naṣr Ibn Ṣaḡīr. Dated April 1057 CE in Fusṭāṭ under the authority of Judah b. Joseph ha-Kohen (‘the Great Rav’). Verso: drafts of letters or documents in Arabic script.</p>
