Fol. 208v: In the upper part of the text space the two initial words “Fifteen” (חמש עשרה) for the opening of tractate Yevamot are written in black display script in an elaborate panel filled with red and green pen work. The panel incorporates at the upper part, the last verses of Hullin written in shaped text of two small triangles and also includes a small inscribed rectangle with the words: "Let us walk in the light of the Lord" (Is. 2:5;לכו ונלכה באור ה'). A spread eagle, a dragon, and a man (St. George) slaying a small dragon are depicted in the upper part of the panel, above the word, while a bear-like pink quadruped is depicted at the middle between the two words. The panel is framed by a red line and decorated with a red scroll with green and yellow flowers and green tendrils. A large flower stems from the centre of the panel. At the lower part of the left text column a smaller initial word "How" (כיצד) from a paragraph of the tractate is written in alternating red and black display script.
