Title

MS 1011, Leviticus 10:11 to 16:11

Description

MS1011 consists of four separate sheets of parchment joined together by sewing through the use of a sinew. Each panel is written in the hand of a different scribe, with some portions being newer than others. The oldest is about 200 years old, while the newest is about 85.
The scroll exhibits a mix of three separate writing hands – Yemenite, Iraqi and North African. These were very likely joined together in the land of Israel. The last panel of text exhibits the use of Tagin (Crownlets), while the other sections do not. The text is written in a format of 51 lines per column. A doubled letter PEH or “Peh Kefulah” can be noted on the word “Pnei Hakaporet.”
