Parchment fragment with pen trials and drawings. Recto: monumental Hebrew characters with full masoretic vocalization and decorative flourishes; a sun or other concentric shape with rays; and a pair of small houses, which Goitein (see index card) interprets as a Nile boat. Verso: basmala in Arabic script, Hebrew aleph-bet in order; ink blots that have been spread out with a pen. (MR, with thanks to RSK for rediscovering the fragment)
