Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: part of a ketubba for Sitt al-Bayt bat Jacob and an unnamed groom. Dated Thursday 28th (month and year not preserved) in Tyre. The bride is mentioned in another document dating to 1102 CE (T-S 8J4.18c), which is an agreement that her husband will provide for her in Tyre until he can bring her with him to Fusṭāṭ (which must have eventually occurred, hence the documents’ final resting place in the Cairo Genizah). The names of witnesses are not preserved. Verso: one word in Arabic script.</p>
