Meshulam Simmel signed his name three times in different places of the page. Here is one of the three: 
In the lower section of the left column is a German colophon in Latin characters, reads: 
Carolo VI. Unserem Aller Höchsten Monarchen zu Ehren Habe ich Dieses als DERO aller unterthänigster, gehorsamster und demüthigster Knecht geschrieben und ausgefertiget in DERO Erb-Königreich BOHEIMB in der Hoch Fürstlicher Dietrichsteini’schen Herrschafft Ligenden Stadt Polna. 
Translation: "Carolo VI. To our all highest monarch I have made this as HIS sub servant, obedient and humble servant, written and made in HIS kingdom BOHEIMB (Bohemia) in the town of Polna." 

Signed in different shade of ink and script in the last row of the lower section of the left column is a "colophon" of a scribe, in German: Samuel Moyses Hebraischer pergament Schreiber ("Samuel Moses Hebrew parchment scribe").

Samuel Moses' longer signature appears in Simmel's Mi SheBerach for Charles VI (Cod. Hebr. 223), as follows:
Samuel Moyses Jud und Haebreisch / auch Pargam Schreiber auß Polna in b(öhmen). ("Samuel Moses a Jew and a Hebrew parchment scribe from Polna in Bohemia").
