- The text is not subdivided into paragraphs (halakhot), neither graphically nor numerically, rather into small sentences; sentence endings denoted by a punctus; These folios from Mishneh Torah are likely to be a segment from this work, expounding on the laws pertaining to Lev. ibid. 17. This could explain why our fragment is not presented in the common Mishneh Torah format, divided into paragraphs; Compare to a similar midrash in New York ENA 2572, 15C, or Oxford Bodleian Heb. d. 62 fols. 83-93 (Cowely 2850, 33) on Ex. XXI-XXII. British Library Or. 10730 fol. 3. See Ben Levin in Rabenu Mosheh ben Maimon : ḥayaṿ, sefaraṿ, peʻulotaṿ ṿe-deʻotaṿ : ḳovets torani-madaʻi ... / Judah Leib Maimon [ed.]. Yerushalayim : ha-Merkaz ha-ʻolami shel ha-Mizraḥi 1935, pp. 101-145.
