Fol. 20v: In the lower outer margin, a panel with a man seated on a bench illustrates the adjacent text of Rabban Gamliel. Wearing a robe of yellow ochre brushed with gold powder and a red folded hat with a brim, he is holding an open book in his left hand, while pointing sideways with his right index finger. The magenta ground of the panel is decorated with feathery yellow scrolls and the tiled floor is in alternating dark and light grey. Acanthus scrolls decorate the top and bottom of the panel.

The iconography of Rabban Gamliel, similar to that of other rabbis in Sephardi and Ashkenazi haggadot from all periods, usually consists of a seated man with or without an open book in his hands (figs. 1, 2). In the Hileq and Bileq Haggadah he is similarly pointing with his right index finger, but upwards. In some Sephardi examples he is depicted with his disciples (fig. 3).
