Seven leaves, fragments of an early manuscript, presumably from a "bindings geniza" – Mishneh Torah by the Rambam, Sefer Shoftim. [Early Oriental script, ca. 14th century].
Before us are two leaves from Hilchot Edut (laws of witnesses; Chapter 21, Law 5 – Chapter 22, Law 2), four leaves from Hilchot Mamrim (laws of rebellious ones; Chapter 2, middle of Law 9 – Chapter 4, middle of Law 3), and a leaf from Hilchot Melachim UMilchamot (laws of kings and wars; Chapter 6, Law 6 – end of Law 13).
Several marginal glosses in early Oriental script.
[7] leaves. 23.5 cm. Overall fair condition. Varying degrees of damage. Tears and damage (some leaves were cut lengthwise, to fit binding, and reattached), professionally restored, with damage to text in several places.
