<p style='text-align: justify;'>Shorthand Hebrew Bible, 1 Chronicles 3:5-17; 4:8-14, of the serugin type (with a focus on the accented syllable). Strictly abbreviated, with only one or two letters per word. When an accent is pre- or post-positive, the first or last letter of the word is given. The manuscript is classified by Revell (1977: 28) as P308, with vocalisation of class 2 (1970: 79). The manuscript is a palimpsest, with a Hebrew undertext still faintly visible, probably liturgical poetry.</p>
