The text "We were Pharaoh's bondmen" is inscribed in the lower part of the page. Below it, in the lower margin is Pharaoh, enthroned, crowned and holding a golden scepter. He is flanked by a guard on the left, and on the right by an Egyptian astrologer, who is pointing at the stars in a segment of sky that appears in the right margin. Inscribed near Pharaoh:
"מלך מי כמוני/ לי יאור ואני עשיתיני (!)"
"No king is like me, the river is mine, and I have made it for myself" (a combined verse based on Jes. 44:7 and Ezek. 29:9).
An additional inscription is above the astrologer:
"אצטגנוני פרעה חזו בככבי שמיא שנולד בן ויהי' לוקה במיא/ לכן ציוה פרעה בכל מצרים להשליך כל הבן הילוד למים."
"The astrologers of Pharaoh saw in the stars of heaven that a son (the Saviour of Israel) was born and he will be afflicted by water. That is why Pharaoh ordered throughout Egypt to cast every son born into the water (Ex.1:22)."
