This document comprises seventeen lines of Hebrew text written on leather (ca. 15.5 × 6.5 cm). It is an 'I owe you' note from the second year of the Revolt, issued at an unidentified place called החרמת. As is to be expected in such Jewish deeds, no interest is mentioned, but it elaborates in great detail the securities for the repayment of the loan. The photograph of this document was found among the papers of the late Prof. Y. Yadin. Unfortunately we do not know either where it was found or its present location. Most probably it was shown to Yadin by an antiquities dealer. An English version of this paper is to be published in the Israel Exploration Journal.
