Little context is provided for this inventory of an individual known only as Gogonetus. Since the inventory was compiled on the order of a judge, it seems likely that Gogonetus had fallen afoul of the law in some way. A suggestive phrase referring to one of the rooms as "the bedroom in which he was lying sick" indicates that Gogonetus had been ill and was perhaps deceased. The presence of many garments and household linens, including clerical vestments and a type of headdress worn by married Jewish women, known as a bendar, suggests that Gogonetus was a pawnbroker. The most unusual series of entries lists a cloak belonging to a Jewish woman, two cote-hardies, and a bloodred houppelande, all of which had been found in the upper house, hidden away in an armoire, and covered in excrement (copertas de ordura).
