APIS Translation (English)
P. O.I. A6967, recto: (1) In the name of God, the merciful, the compassionate. (2) This is what Tusanah, daughter of Bisanti...(?) gave as a charitable grant to the church of the monastery of Naqlun (3) and (to that of) Mikail (of) Shalla--the two monasteries that are in the desert and are known as al-Naqlun and Shalla in the district (4) of the Fayyum: the fertile tract (of land) that adjoins the residence of Darkun, daughter of Bisanti, to the limits of all its boundaries, with its timber beams (5) and its structure and its gates and its small garden and all its accessories and its paths and the sum total of its rights in their entirety and its loft(?) (6) and all that is contained within its boundaries and enclosed within its walls. (This is) an irrevocable charitable grant for the sake of God, to whom be glory and majesty. (7) She desires for this neither reward nor praise except from God alone without any associate. The acknowledgement of (8) Tusanah, daughter of Bisanti, to all the contents of this deed was testified to by witnesses who know her in person and by name (9) and that she is sound in mind and body and in control of her affairs. And it is a charitable grant seized and possessed (10) for these two monasteries irrevocably. Tusanah, daughter of Bisanti, can neither revoke this charitable grant (11) nor make any condition or reservation (regarding it). For this fertile tract of land and its loft are an irrevocable charitable grant for the sake of God to these two monasteries. (12) Testimony is given to the acknowledgement of Tusanah, daughter of Bisanti,...(?) made in sound mind (13) and body and in control of her affairs, of her own volition, seeking, and desire, neither constrained nor forced, (14) without any defect of disease or of anything else. And that in the month of Jumada I of the year six (15) and thirty and three hundred. Witness is given to these (facts): (16) Bulus, son of Isma'il, gave witness to all that is in this document and wrote his testimony with his own hand. (17) Yusuf, son of Isma'il, gave witness to the acknowledgement of Tusanah, daughter of Bisanti, of all that is in this deed and wrote (18) his testimony with his own hand. God is his sufficiency, and the best of guardians is he. P. O.I. A6967, upper left corner: (1) This (written) document was certified in the presence of Muhammad, son of 'Abd Allah, and that in the (2) month of Shawwal of the year (six and?) thirty and three hundred.
