Catalogue Note

This firman, dated to the end of Ramadan 1092 AH/1681 AD, during the reign of Sultan Mehmed IV, awards the revenues of various villages in the district of Mincigirt (modern day Inkaya in Kars province) to a certain Ramazan, who is identified as being "tall, with hazel eyes and light-coloured eyebrows", as zeamet (land tenure in return for military service) in addition to the lands already held by him.
