Cairo Genizah : Legal document; piyyuṭ

Cairo Genizah

<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto: letter to the Fatimid official ʿAmīd al-Dawla requesting that the state seize certain properties in Palestine that are in the petitioner’s possession. They are not producing revenues and essentially abandoned, and the petitioner doesn’t want to incur further liabilities by being responsible for them. This probably dates to just before the reassignment of iqṭāʿ properties in 1107-1108 CE. Revenues had dwindled at this time and government officials were harassing their owners for revenue. Verso: Hebrew liturgical poetry.</p>
