Col. 26. Five men wearing masks and tall pointed hats are dancing in a circle playing musical instruments. The scene most likely depicts Purim celebration contemporary to the manuscript's creator.
The final decoration of the scroll includes a structure based on two columns with carved shafts that are supporting an arch. It is decorated with the Tablets of the Law and a Star of David. The columns flank a decorative cartouche with the Foa family emblem - a palm tree and two lions facing each other. An empty cartouche adorned with angel's heads is set below it.
