Fragment from an ancient copy of Divrei Hayamim, punctuated with Babylonian upper vocalization. Extremely
A fragment from Divrei Hayamim (Book I 13:3:-15:12). Written on parchment. Dated to the 14th century (700 years ago). Very rare! Manuscripts punctuated with the Babylonian (upper) vowels are particularly rare. There are a few variations from the masoretic text (apparently scribal errors: 13:8 “and with timbrels and cymbals/and with cybals”; 15:7 “of the sons of Gershom/Gershon”).
A missing section of the parchment has been replaced and there are a few notations.
Attached is the expert opinion of Prof. Yosef Ofer, the preeminent authority in this field.
Time stains on some pages
