- A genealogical list of Exilarchs from Zakai ben 'Azariah to David and Adam. Zakai ben 'Azariah is the brother of the better-known Daniel, the Gaon of the Erets Israeli Yeshivah between 1051 and 1062. The list starts with almost four lines of honorifics applied to Zakai, followed by 13 lines of Exilarchs and their biblical antecedents. The last eight lines, filling to the end of the page, is an explanation in Judeo-Arabic in the importance of recording the Davidic decent of the Exilarchs.
