Text page including the text of the SeMak and commentaries written in two main columns with additional commentary set in the inner and outer margins of the page.  The commentary in the inner margin is shaped in circles set one below the other, surrounded by a double frame in red ink.

The commentary text continues under both main columns into the lower margin, surrounded on the right side by an outline in the shape of a crouching winged dragon set in profile and baring its teeth with bands of small circles decorating it’s wings, chest and tail, all executed in red and brown ink.  The commentary on the left side is surrounded by an outline in the shape of a crouching hybrid incorporating the body of an animal, a frontal human face with a beard split down the middle and animal ears, all executed in brown ink,. The scribe instructs the reader on the correct order of reading these shaped commentaries, by tiny inscriptions set below both drawings (See: General document, Scribal Notes).

The page includes many words rubricated in red.
