Depictions of the completed cities of Pithom and Raamses next to the words "They imposed hard labour upon us…" (ויתנו עלינו עבודה קשה) appear in several Ashkenazi and Italo-Ashkenazi haggadot of the 15th century. Besides our haggadah (fig. 1), the cities appear in the Siddur of the Rabbi of Ruzhin (fig. 2) and in the An-sky Haggadah (fig. 3), although in the latter and in other haggadot the building process is shown (cf. fol. 11).
