Leaf from an Arabic treatise, calligraphic and vocalized. It appears to be a literary anthology, with quotations and verses cited from various Abbasid-era caliphs and poets. The margin on one side contains text from the mishna (Berakhot 4:2). The margin on the other side contains accounts in Arabic-script, naming people such as Abū Saʿd, Abū Isḥāq, Abū l-Faḍl, and Maʿānī.
