13)[line 23]א''ל דקדיםAMAR LEI, D'KADIM- that is, Rav Sheshes said that he gave the property to Rami bar Chama since his Shtar was written earlier, although it was not necessarily delivered earlier. (Rav Sheshes apparently thought that if Edei Chasimah Karsei, the time of the transaction is determined by the time of the writing of the Shtar even if it was not written in the Shtar. Rav Nachman corrected him, saying, "Even if you would be right that Edei Chasimah Karsei, the time the Shtar was written would matter only if it was written explicitly in the Shtar." - RASHI)
