"Size and general condition.- Fine parchment 13.5x22 cm., containing parts of 12 lines. Script and margins lost would require a format of greater width than length, measuring about 16.5x27 cm. Parts of the upper margin still remain, but the text is broken and much damaged.
Contents.- Recto, Sūrah 6:139 (يكن)-142 (الله); verso, ibid.: 143 ([الذ]كرين)-45 (فسقا). In verso 9 we have تكون instead of يكون as in the printed text. The diacritical strokes for t, however, are in dark ink and were likely added later. Dānī informs us that Ibn Kathīr, Ibn ʿĀmir, and Ḥamzah read t, the rest y.
Script.- Small Makkan (?); that of verso especially is doubtful; short vertical strokes, the alif bends very slightly to the right. The whole is neatly executed. Spacing is liberal, but words do not stand out as much. The only letter of special interest is the separate ʿain of الزرع in recto 6. It ist he old form of the letter, but without the usual downward curve to the right.
Red vowel dots are used, but very sparingly. Diacritical strokes are fully used, though f has none and ḳ only one stroke above. A few black strokes, as in recto 1 and 8 and verso 9 and 10, and a modern ḍammah in recto 6 point to the later addition of these particular signs. Alif of prolongation is left out except in جنات (cf. No. 6) in recto 5.
