Li Gang, Matsui Dai. An Old Uighur Receipt Document Newly Discovered in the Turfan Museum // Written Monuments of the Orient. 2(4), 2016. P. 68—75.


This article introduces an Old Uighur document, which had been excavated seemingly in the Bezeklik Caves and was recently re-discovered in the Turfan Museum. It is supposed to be a receipt for the payment of the poll tax (qupčir) of the Mongol period, and to be closely related to the Old Uighur administrative orders of the St. Petersburg collection (SI 6544).
