text: Sept. 24 1166 - Mar. 7/26 1167.  Bohemond III, Dei gratia princeps Antiochenus, records under seal how after the death of Petrus Gayus, burgensis principis, his creditors sued in the prince’s curia for repayment from his property. Such was the size of the debts that the curia decreed that they could only be repaid by the sale of his immoveable goods. For some days the auction of these was advertised in Antioch, with a reserve of 3200 besants. Bartholomeus de Moissac offered 6200 besants. The creditors would be repaid from these. Bartholomeus had already paid 1777 Saracen besants to Petrus Gayus [Bartholomeus ex prop[r]io suo Petro Gayo reddiderat et emendaverat]. Bartholomeus is to have the property [hereditas] in conjunction with the Hospital of St John of Jerusalem, which he chose to be his partner in this deal. The property consists of the gastina S. Basilii, which belonged to Michael Magnus, Georgius Raiz and Theodorus notarius ducis, to whom Petrus Gayus paid annually de dimos 4 besants to Michael, 2 besants to Georgius Raiz and 2 besants to Theodorus. Neighbours of the gastina are the vineyards of Boordiz, the gastina S. Machabeorum and the gastina S. Simeonis, which Aimericus Richerius possesses. Adjacent is a pecia terre which had been the property [hereditas] of Michael Magnus, bordered by a river [fluvius] on the west. On the other side are the vineyards of S. Georgius, Hugo Darena and Alexander de Porta. Prince Bohemond gives the pecia terre and the gastina, with a tower and other buildings, and wasteland and vineyards nearby which belonged to Petrus Gayus, and the rent from other vineyards leased to other people, to Bartholomeus and the Hospital of St John, to be shared equally. They may sell or pledge the properties to whomsoever they wish, including churches and religious communities, provided the dimi of 8 besants is paid annually to Bohemond’s homines.
