Sewn by sinew threads. Both ends of the scroll are cropped straight. The edge at the end of the scroll is perforated with four holes, which were probably used for holding the (missing) roller. The scroll is stored in a box.

36 Decoration Program

The double text columns are framed by bands with rectangular panels of copperplate decoration colored by hand and set in gilt double borders. The upper and lower bands comprise 20 text illustrations, most of them containing two succesive scenes, colored in red, yellow, gold yellow, orange, reddish-brown, green, bordeaux and gray. The illustrations are interspersed with small panels situated above and below the intercolumnar spaces. The panels enclose an intricate labyrinth motif colored in gold powder and turquoise.  The intercolumnar spaces are decorated with framed panels filled with stylized floral motifs colored in red, yellow, orange and green. The edges at the beginning and end of the megillah are decorated with large, symmetrical floral scrolls. The scrolls at the beginning are inhabited by the "Four animals" and the scrolls at the end extend from stylized vases colored blue, yellow, green,bordeauxand brown.

20 Description

Col. 19 The crowned Esther sits on a high-backed chair in a room on the right side of the upper panel. She sits under a curtain at a round table and writes with a quill on a sheet of paper/ parchment??. Two bearded men stand behind the table looking on (Es. 9:29).A landscape with a city in the background is depicted on the left of the panel In the lower panel are five men wearing masks and tall pointed hats are dancing in a circle in a tiled room. Each plays a different musical instrument (Es. 9:17-18).Two rampant lions are depicted supporting a foliate cartouche, surmounted by a fleur-de-lis at the center of the opening panel of the scroll. They stand on leaves which sprout from a fleur-de-lis beneath the cartouche. The "four animals" (Ethics of the Fathers 5:23) are set around the central motifs, amongst a background of foliate scrolls. A leopard is depicted above the cartouche in the center and an eagle with outstretched  wings is depicted in the top right corner. A rabbit is depicted in the lower right and a lion attacking another animal (possibly a squirrel) is depicted in the bottom center. Most of the ink of the leopard has flaked off.
