<p style='text-align: justify;'>Left half of a legal document, written by Mevoraḵ b. Nathan b. Samuel, the court clerk and judge. Abū ʿAlī al-Qazzaz b. Ḵalaf, the silk worker, states that in view of the ‘changing times’ (i.e. the uncertainty at the start of Ayyubid rule in Egypt) he had received from his wife Ḵulla bint Nathan 19 dinars. This had been her personal possession (a possible inheritance from her deceased father) but it will now be entrusted to her husband. In return, the sum will be retrievable from Abū ʿAlī’s possessions and his estate after his death, just as if the dinars had formed part of her marriage contract. Dated summer 1175 CE.</p>
