Vol. II, fol. 30: The initial word King (מלך; Davidson, Thesaurus, מ 1543), opening the yozer of the morning service for the second day of New Year, is written and decorated by Scribe B in dark brown ink display letters (height:65 mm., 6 lines) surrounded by red and blue foliate scrolls with trefoil flowers.

The scrolls issue from the tongues and tails of two winged dragons in alternating red and blue, depicted with intertwined necks above the initial word. The scrolls are inhabited by a red dog seated on the right and by a fully armed knight below, wearing chain-mail and a square helmet surmounted by a red floral motif. He is holding a shield with a coat-of-arms featuring a lion in his left hand and brandishing a sword in his right. He is facing a lion passant with a scroll in its mouth. The lion may illustrate the initial word King; in the far left a blue griffin is raising its right foot and pecking at a flower.
