20 Description

In a medallion in the outer margin, next to the initial word panel of the piyyut for the first day of Passover, Musaf אלים ביום מחוסן (Davidson I,  א' No. 5126, p. 236), mostly cropped by a later binder, is a horned kid (Capricorn) representing the month of Tevet (out of sequence). The medallion has a red ground framed within a yellow band. The rectangular initial word panel at the top of the page is written in display script, surrounded by dragons and acorns, with a lion's mask within the last letter. The panel is framed by six crowns and dragons with protruding tongues all on a criss-cross ground.
