20 Description Marking the beginning of Psalm 72, a long-beaked bird hovers over a serpent-like grotesque in the inner margin. Each of them bites either end of a leaf while a foliate stem extends upwards from the bird's head. Two confronting cocks with extended necks, are enclosed within a polygonal panel set in the lower third of the outer text column between Psalms 72 and 73. Four golden roundels decorate the panel's corners. The panel is flanked on the right by an animal-headed grotesque suspended from a foliate stem, crowning a female grotesque below. These figures probably refer to verse 15 of the psalm which reads, ויתן לו מזהב שבא, "And to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba." On the left, the panel is flanked by an animal-headed grotesque suspended from a foliate stem, holding a sickle above the head of another grotesque. Foliate stems descend from both of the lower grotesques culminating in a roundel enclosing a floral motif, beneath the text column. Two leaves link both roundels.
