Beginning of 3 Kings
These leaves seem to form a group because of the consistency of the leaf and text measurements and the ruling pattern; leaves are paginated with pencil numbers in the upper left-hand corner of each side of each leaf.
This leaf is from a set of thirty-one leaves that were cut from a single manuscript that once comprised a complete Bible.
This page begins 3 Kings, which tells of David's later life. In the initial E, David appears in bed, weak with old age, being attended to by the young and beautiful maiden Abishag.
