20 Description

The scroll opens and closes with the hand-drawn Foa family קצנךקצ executed in a pen and black ink. The text columns are surrounded by acanthus leaves and floral motifs. The lower margins are filled with 26 cartouches containing figurative scenes from the narrative of the Book of Esther; some of the episodes are pictured twice or three times in the scroll. It seems that the illustrations were executed by two artists and some of them seem to be based on the episodes depicted in the scrolls representing the type Gaster I (see IDs 61, 1098, 1441, and 21702). The cartouches are interspersed by the interlaced pattern similar to the ornamentation of Gaster I scrolls. In most cases, the episodes are with no direct relation to the sections inscribed above them, therefore, it is difficult to interpret some of them unambiguously. The decoration of the scroll can be a later addition. The illustrations represent two styles of drawing.

20 Description

The opening decoration is composed of a gate that frames the cartouche with the Foa family emblem. The oval field of the cartouche is filled with two rampant lions flanking a palm tree with a star of David on its branches. The gable of the gate is supported on two twisted columns and decorated with an empty elongated cartouche.

Col. 1. The cartouche encloses a scene of the Ahasuerus' feast (Es. 1:3-8). On the left, the bearded king sits on the throne at a long, laid table. He is accompanied by six men who sit on either side of the table. On the right, a servant with the dishes goes out of the room.

20 Description

Col. 2. The cartouche encloses a scene that depicts the bearded Ahasuerus sitting on a throne and pointing to a figure who kneels before him. Two people stand behind the kneeling figure and three other people stand on the right talking amongst each other. The king's guard stands on the left behind the throne. The scene is difficult to interpret especially that the illustrations included in the scroll are not depicted in the chronological order. It can be either the moment when the king gives the ring to Haman or the moment when he extends the scepter to Esther (it can be again suggested by a gesture of the king but no scepter is visible).

Col. 3. On the right, Ahasuerus sits on the throne and a man kneeling at his feet; another man is watching this scene. Possibly it is the moment when Haman is begging for his life (Es. 7:8). On the left, Haman is hanged on the gallows on which a ladder is leaning. Two executioners, one of them holds a shield and spear, stand on the right of the gallows, and another executioner stands on the far left, also holding a spear (Es. 7:10).

20 Description

Col. 4. On the right, the second banquet given by Esther is shown (Es. 7:1). The queen sits at a round laid table and is accompanied by Ahasuerus who sits on the throne topped by a canopy, and by Haman who sits between them. In the central part of the cartouche, Haman is begging for his life and is prostrated on the floor before Esther while Ahasuerus is returning from the palace gardens (Es. 7:7-8). A king's guard stands in the left foreground holding a spear.

Col. 5. In the foreground is shown Ahasuerus seated on a throne under a canopy and a figure (Esther?) kneeling before him. The king extends his scepter to Esther (?) who outstretches her arm to touch it. In the background, two scribes sit at the table on which rest two letters. A guard stands behind the king's throne on the right. On the far left, two mounted messengers riding towards a city. The scene can be interpreted in two ways; it can depict either the events from the III and V chapters or from the VIII chapter as listed above in the "Iconographical Subject".

20 Description

Col. 6. On the left, a scribe or the king (?) writes one of the decrees and two men are watching at him. Five other men are standing nearby; two of them have spears in their hands. In the scroll, the episodes are not depicted in the chronological order, therefore, it is difficult to determine which event is shown in this cartouche.

Co. 7. The scene is difficult to interpret. On the left is shown the king seated on the throne under a canopy. In front of him, there is a group of men (soldiers?) clothed in the same garments. In the background, three tents are visible.  

The cartouche encloses a scene of the bearded Ahasuerus sitting on a throne under a canopy on the left, holding a scepter. At the center stands Haman (?) before a group of soldiers against a camp with three tents in the background.

20 Description

Col. 8. On the right, two men are talking. Most likely they are Ahasuerus (with a scepter in his hand) and Haman who are discussing how should be honored a man the king wishes to reward (Es. 6:5-10). In the background, the city walls are shown. On the left, Mordecai rides a horse followed by two men. Haman blowing a trumpet walks before the horse (Es. 6:11).

Col. 9. On the right, a banquet given by Esther is depicted, however, it is disputable if it is the first or the second Esther's feast. The scene shows the queen, the king, and Haman are sitting in the palace gardens at a round laid table. A servant visible in the central part of the cartouche walks towards them to serve a dish. On the left, a man (Haman?, Mordecai?) stands before the enthroned Ahasuerus and a guard stands behind the throne.

20 Description

Col. 10. On the right, a man with a sheet with writing in his hands stands before three scribes seated at a table; most likely this is the moment when the decree against Jews is dictated to the scribes (Es. 3:12). In the background, at the center, Mordecai stands in front of the palace gate (Es. 4:2). On the left, there are two men and two women in the palace courtyard. Possibly the scene depicts the moment when Esther is informed about the decree of Haman (Es. 4:4-6).

Col. 11. The scene shows a group of people standing and is difficult to interpret. The large figure at the center can depict Mordecai in mourning at the news of the Haman's decree against Jews (Es. 4:1). Some of the men in the group holding spears.

Col. 12. The scene shows enthroned king accompanied by his servants but it is difficult to determine which particular event from the Esther story it depicts.

Col. 13. The triumph of Mordecai represented as the crowded scene set against a walled city with a gate. Mordecai is shown in the center, dressed in red, riding a horse led by Haman. Some of the figures are bowing and others raising their hands (Es. 6:11).

20 Description

Col. 16A group of soldiers holding spears and fighting on a battleground is depicted. Two figures, on the right and on the left, lie dead on the ground and two men raise their hands (Es. 9:5).

Col. 17On the right, Ahasuerus sits on the throne and outstretches his right hand towards Esther who is kneeling before him and raises her hands in the air (Es. 8:3). A man (Mordecai?) stands in the center and gestures. The scene is difficult for an unambiguous interpretation because, in the Book of Esther, it is not the only episode when Esther pleads with the king. In this case, the presence of Mordecai (?) suggests that it depicts the moment when Esther is begging the king to annul the decree against the Jews.

Col. 18The scene shows a troop of soldiers armed with spears and shields marching in a row. A camp of seven tents stands in the background. Possibly it represents Jews fighting their enemies (Es. 9:5, 15).

Col. 19The cartouche joins two scenes that are difficult to interpret but unquestionably they depict episodes from the IV chapter of the Book of Esther. On the right, there are four men; one of them reads from a sheet to a man who moves to the left. This can be the moment when Mordecai informs Hatach about Haman's decree (Es. 4:6-8). The other two men standing at the center are guards; one holds a shield and the other has a spear. On the left, Esther talks to two men; possibly one of them is Hatach (Es. 4:10-11). Other interpretations of the episodes are also possible.

20 Description

Col. 22. On the right, a man is standing before the enthroned Ahasuerus who outstretches out his right hand towards him; it can be the moment when the king bestows Haman's properties upon Mordecai (Es. 8:2). Another figure (Esther?) stands between them in the background and behind the king's throne, a guard is standing. On the left, two men stand gesturing.

Col. 23The third representation of the triumph of Mordecai (Es. 6:11) in the scroll. Haman stands before Mordecai dressed in red and riding a horse, surrounded by a crowd of people. Haman stands in the center facing the viewer and raises his hands in the air. On the right, two men kneel before Mordecai and the royal couple watches the scene from the palace balcony (?).

Col. 26. Five men wearing masks and tall pointed hats are dancing in a circle playing musical instruments. The scene most likely depicts Purim celebration contemporary to the manuscript's creator.

The final decoration of the scroll includes a structure based on two columns with carved shafts that are supporting an arch. It is decorated with the Tablets of the Law and a Star of David. The columns flank a decorative cartouche with the Foa family emblem - a palm tree and two lions facing each other. An empty cartouche adorned with angel's heads is set below it.
