20 Description

Fol. 204: The page contains the end of Numbers and the beginning of Deuteronomy. The end of Numbers in the upper part of the page is written in shaped text forming a central inverted triangle flanked by two trapezoids. Just below is the initial word of Deuteronomy אלה הדברים (These be the words), written in brown display letters (height c.5 lines), the stems decorated with small rosettes. The letters are each surrounded by massoretic text in micrography terminating at the edges in pen-drawn acanthus leaves. In the lower margin, a winged dragon with a foliate tail is about to swallow a smaller one with a guilloche body ending in two dragon's heads. These are about to be attacked by a lion's head. A hoopoe and an eagle are pecking at flowers, standing on acanthus leaves on each side of the initial word.

On the left is the end-of-book sign within a simple cartouche.
