<p style='text-align: justify;'>Palimpsest. Upper text: piyyuṭim by Yannai, qeduštaʾot for the reading of two sedarim in the Palestinian triennial cycle, Leviticus 16:1 and 16:25, part of a maḥzor of Yannai’s poetry. Under text: Origen’s Hexapla on Psalms 22 (21 in the Greek tradition), written in majuscule and preserving columns 2 (Hebrew transliterated into Greek; only a few letters remain); 3 (Aquila); 4 (Symmachus); and 5 (Septuagint). Nothing of column 6 (Theodotion) survives. The under-text is among the earliest manuscripts in the Genizah and is probably to be dated to the 7th century CE. The upper-text is ca. 10th century. This fragment of Yannai’s works, can be joined with other leaves in the Genizah Collection to make a complete quire. Although each sheet of vellum used in the quire is a palimpsest, they are not from the same original manuscript. </p>
