- Text breaks denoted by a punctus, plus spaces of varying width; Fol. 1 contains a fragment from Pesuḳe de-zimrah, the common sequence as found in the Oriental siddurim (Saʹadia, Solomon of Sujulmassa), including the end of the preliminary blessing האל המהולל, followed by the assembled Psalm excerpts יהי כבוד, (the last verse is missing, but added in the margin in a different hand), and Psalms CXLV and CXLVI (the fragment reaches verse 9); Fol. 2 is a fragment from the recitation of the Shemaʹ sequence, including Deut. XI 18-21, Numbers XV 37-41, and the subsequent אמת ויציב which connects it to the ʹAmidah; The last line in the fragment is מפי עוללים ויונקים שירה שמעת על הים יחד כולם, as in the Siddurim of both Saʹadia and Solomon.
