Torah with Targum Onḳelos
With Targum Onḳelos after each verse. On the margins the small masorah with some additions, such as Num. 4. מפי החזן מטרוייש . The larger masorah ceases on Gen. 16; it is to be found again on Ex. 14:15 and a few lines at the end of Numbers and the beginning of Deut.
On fol. 60 an extract from Targum Yerushalmi, different from the edn., ed. from this MS by A. Epstein in REJ 30 (1895): 46-47.
Copied by Simḥah b. Judah of Nuremberg, who copied the Worms Mahzor in 1272 (MS Jerusalem JNUL 4° 781/1). The vocalizer-Masorete's name was probably Baruch (pointed out in the masorah on fol. 16v).
Hair side/flesh side are indistinguishable, pricking, ruling are often visible.
