The date of the ketubah is probably incorrect because the 16th of Tishre 5639 is not a Thursday, and is a holiday. The names of the witnesses appear to be written by
Marriage contract, manuscript, ink and paint on paper, dated 5th be-shabat 16th [sic, i.e. 13th?] of Tishre 5639 at Itsfahan (1878). At the top of the document there is a shiviti graphic. A shiviti was traditionally designed to be hung on a synagogue wall
100 x 76 cm.
