The Golden Chart: decorated chart; decorated initial word panel; decorated initial word: MS I:10-10v (infold:top to bottom, figs. 1, 2); MS II:67v (fig. 3) includes the Golden Chart and the instructions which are designed as an alternative method for calculating the seasons. The title לוח הזהב (Luah Hazahav) is written within a panel in dark brown display script on a green and orange ground decorated by orange and green scrolls respectively. The tables are made up of interlaced bands coloured in alternating yellow ochre and brown (centre), orange and yellow ochre (lower centre), and green and white turned grey (on the sides). The initial words of the instructions (MS I:10) are written in display script filled with lotus scrolls and barbed rosettes in red and green. The uncoloured inverted intial word letters וזה at the top (fig. 1) are shaped as folded ribbons in brown ink. Gold-leaf roundels and open flowers denote the ends of the instructions.
