Fol. 103:

On the lower part of the right text column is a small map illustrating Rashi's commentary for Judges 21:19 which describes the location of the city ofShiloh, (mentioned in the text of Judges) in relation to other cities and places. The biblical text and Rashi commentary indicate thatShilohis placed to the north of Beth-el, south of Levona and east of the highway leading up from Beth-el to Shechem.

The map includes three small rectangles set in a row, inscribed with the names of cities (from right to left): "Beth-el" (בית אל), "Shiloh" (שילה) and "Lebonah" (לבונה).  Underlining these is a longer rectangle, connected by a line to the city ofBeth-eland leading into the city ofShechem, placed to the left of Lebonah.  Inscribed in the long rectangle are the words "The path leading up to Shechem" (מסילה העולה לשכם).

In the lower margin is are shaped commentary texts written by scribe A, set in the form of a triangle on the right and a circle set on a rectangle in the middle.
