Portion of a parchment leaf with Hebrew ms. text of Prophets used as binding waste

The text of the large letters is taken from the Prophets, specifically Amos. The right column is cropped text from the 7th word of 2:9 through the first word of 2:12. The left column picks up at the fifth word of 2:15 and continues through chapter 3:1. [See related images below]
