Title

MS 1024, Exodus 12:5 to 14:7

Description

MS 1024 describes the first Passover experienced by the Hebrews in Egypt. The fragment consists of three columns of text removed from the same Torah Scroll as MS 1005 and MS 1012. The deeper brown colored gevil of the parchment is typical of the Tunisian tanning process. The parchment is goat skin, and is dry and becoming brittle. Likewise, the ink is showing signs of early decay. Text columns are formatted to contain 51 lines per columns.
The calligraphy reflects an evolved Spanish/North African style, employing the "Chet of Rashi," wide based letter "Shins", Gimmels with stuck feet, and "Ayins" with stretched bottom bases. The employment of Tagin (crownlets) is standard in this writing tradition.
