Hand #1 of Item "234"
- Type: Main text scribe
- Scribe Identifications: Scribe not identified
- Observations:

Using a darker ink, he second hand is superposed to the original one to preserve the text. It is also responsible for the vocalization of the biblical quotations. While it is drawing carefully on top imitating the older, some traits of the ductus (more curved top bars, longer descendants) allow us to distinguish two different scribes.

Mixed

Tiberian

Vocalization of the Biblical quotations only. In very few cases the JA is vocalized with the Tiberian vowel signs (see fol. 48r)

Yods with symbols/abbreviation signs
