- Recto contains an inscription in Arabic characters, which was probably the primary inscription, before the fol. was folded lengthwise into two equal folios, upon which the secondary inscription, in Hebrew characters, was written; one vocalized word; This includes the end of an unknown ḳinah, which ends לשמה למשל ולשנינה\ ולך לילה איילילה, and its refrain על זאת אספדה ואייל[ילה]. This is followed by the signature in Judeo-Arabic כמל עקב שלום, which may refer to the title of this poem; Remaining 8 lines of the left fol. are written in a different hand, in ink that has mostly faded; this is another lamentation, that starts אקונן ואבכה והעיר בקולי.
- Condition: consecutive, complete; first used as folio.
