A man throwing a naked infant from a crenellated building into the water and another infant falling downwards (flaked off).
בציווי מלך מצרימה (!)
להשליך כל הזכרים למימה
“(It was) the order of the king of Egypt to throw all male children into the water.”
Fols. 13v, 14:
On the left (fol. 14), Pharaoh, crowned, enthroned, clad in purple, holding a golden sceptre, and pointing at Moses and Aaron (fol. 13v) who approach from the right, clad as travelers. Moses holds a large golden rod. Behind them a forest; behind Pharaoh crowned lions (effaced) and the turreted castle of Egypt.
Inscribed near Moses and Aaron:
משה ואהרון לפני פרעה באו
ואת האותות לפניו הראו
“Moses and Aaron came before Pharaoh and showed him the signs.”
מי ה' אשר אלי שלח לי
ממנו לא שמעתי בגבולי
“’Who is the Lord (≠ Ex. 5:2) who sent (you) to me? I have never heard of Him in my country’.”
