Fol. 21: The initial word by Scribe A of the piyyut ארח משפטיך) אף ) (despite; also meaning nose) of the musaf prayers for the first day of the New Year (Davidson 1924-33, א 7090) is written in dark brown ink in display letters (stem height 20 mm; 3 lines). Next to it is a seated monkey smelling an apple and scratching his posterior with his left hand (cf. fol. 2v). This illustration alludes to the pun af, which can mean 'despite' or 'nose'.
The scribe chose to depict smelling.
