Fol. 6-infold: Panim-Ahor (front to back) chart; decorated initial word; decorated tables: The Panim-Ahor (lit. Front to Back or Future to Past) chart is a system for double-checking calculations of moladot (New Moon) and tekufot (seasons). In MS I the chart consists of 6 tables drawn on 4 folios stuck in a row, which are folded inwards to look as one folio. The tables consist of two columns made up of continuous, interwoven bands coloured in alternating red, blue, yellow ochre and green. A dragon's head and a trefoil tail protrude from the lower corners of some tables. The chart of MS I is followed by explanatory texts using the year ש"ע (1610) as an example. The initial words דע (You should know) and וכת"ל = וכשתרצה לידע (When you wish to know), are written in brown ink in either large or smaller letters shaped as folded ribbons with grotesque masks on the stems and ascenders and foliage motifs at the end of the letters. A pair of birds on branches flanking a vase decorates the lower margin. The end of sections is denoted by gold leaf roundels. In Pinhas’ Evronot the Panim-Ahor Chart covers several pages as well. Pinhas also used the intercolumnar space for comprehensive explanations, which continue beyond the tables.
