Fol. 153v: A full-page frame drawn in pen and micrography on the verso at the end of the Book of Leviticus (end of quire XIX). The frame is composed of interwoven foliate and geometrical bands creating four medallions at the corners inhabited by pen-drawn hybrids at the bottom and two spread eagles at the top. The eagles with hooked beaks face to the left, and their tails are adorned with a ring. The two-legged hybrids with lion's heads face inwards; they are standing in heraldic position with wings spread and one leg lifted which was erased and corrected in both.

Panels of this kind usually frame inscriptions or a central image, but here the centre is void; apparently the intention was to emphasize the end of Leviticus and the beginning of Numbers by using a blank page and filling it with the end of the massorah.
