"Size and general condition.- Fine parchment 17x9.5 cm., with 11 lines to the page. The piece shows traces of the inner margin of the adjoining page. It represents about a third of the width of the page, which therefore must have measured about 17x27 cm. What is left of each page is in good condition.
Contents.- Recto, Sūrah 9:17 (ان يعمروا)-26 (وذلك); verso, ibid.: 28 (يغنيكم)-.37 (الذين).
Script.- Small and poor Makkan (?), with a very slight slant, the characters written close together in brown ink that has faded somewhat. Many of the letters are more rounded than angular, e.g. final l. n, and y; the reversed extended y is absent; h in all positions has frequently an unusually long upward stroke, as in recto 1, 3 and 8 and verso 6 and 8. The script has some characteristics in common with Nos. 3-5, especially in the forms of these letters.
Diacritical strokes are used fully and freely, though f is but rarely marked with one stroke below and ḳ with one above. Red vowel dots are also used. A red semicircle is used for hamzah in recto 5 and in verso 1 and 5. If this hamzah is sounded with an a, the sign is placed above the letter, if with an i, it is placed below the letter. A red horizontal stroke below the line is used for waṣlah in verso 9, while the same stroke above a letter is used for maddah in verso 4. A red circle is used with the unpointed letters (al.ḥurūf al-muhmalah) over s in verso 3. In verso 9 we have اثناى for اثنا of the printed text.”
