- Hebrew lead word signified before and after by sof pasuḳ; Missing from lower edge is XXXVIII 25- XXXIX 2; From a Judeo-Arabic translation of Genesis XXIV 58-XXV 17, neither that of Sa'adia Gaon nor that of Japheth ben 'Ali. A Hebrew lead-word is provided at the beginning of each verse; There are a few errant readings, which may stem from ignorant or flexible translation, such as אבי סימאך (=אחיסמך) (XXV 23); compared to the common translations, this one includes a greater degree of hermeneutic embellishments; at XXXVIII 24 is an article on the measure of a ככר; The Oxford fragment ends with a colophon identifying the name of the work as פתרון ואלה שמות, and stating the intention to start פתרון ספר ויקרא.
- Condition: fragment; cropped along all edges; verso stained and faded; probably lacking another column.
