Title

MS 1015, Exodus 13:17 to 34:34

Description

MS 1015 consists of two partial panels of text joined together. Each panel contains two columns, making a total of four columns of text. The text is laid out on a 42 line per column format, but does not contain "Amudei Vavs" at their tops.
The writing style incorporates the slanting of most "Sha'atnez Gez" letter heads at 45-degree angles, and the employment of Tagin (crownlets). Likewise, the use of the Chet of Rashi is standard. The Nun of Notzer for which there is the custom to enlarge is just slightly larger than the normal script. In addition, we see a correction on the Sacred Name of God where the hypodermis was cut and peeled in order to effect the correction.
