Short comments, closer to the sporadic style of Rashi, than the flowing style of the Gaonic glosses. This is not Rashi's gloss, nor Judah ben Nathan's. No sources are mentioned by name. This hand is known to have copied other Talmud glosses that may have been from pre-crusade Worms or Mayence, that were later to be obscured by Rashi.
The recto contains comments on the end of 22b to the end of the Mishnah on 23b. The verso contains comments on 24b הנטען על אשת איש to the beginning of 25a.
This Ashkenazic cursive hand has produced many large parchment folios and fragments found in the Genizah, all of which are Talmudic glosses and commentaries, some of which are obscure and appear to have been composed before Rashi.
They cramp 45-60 lines per page and often contain extensive addenda in the margins. Folios from such codices are extant, on Menaḥot as in Cambridge TS F3.59, and on ʹArakhin in Oxford Bodleian Heb. d. 34 fol. 96 (Cowely 2680, 20).
Folios from a codex containing glosses on the smaller tractates at the end of Ḳodashim are found in London, British Library Or. 5558A; Oxford Heb. d. 80, fols. 34-35; New York JTSA ENA 3593, 6; Oxford Heb. d. 48 fol. 40 (Cowely 2760, 17), attached to a folio in the same hand, from Samson of Sens' Tosafot on Pesaḥim, other remnants of which are found in Oxford Heb. c. 23 fol. 53 (2667, 20); Heb. d. 63 fol. 46 (2826, 25); Cambridge TS F4.8; and Petersburg RNL Antonin B 316.
There are also nine folios from a gloss on Bava batra in Cambridge TS F3.73, and fragments from one on Bava metsia in British Library Or.12299 fol. 9 and Cambridge TS F3.7.
12 folios from the same ms. continuing Yevamot (chapter 3) are in Cambridge TS F3.72. Two more are in ibid. F3.8, and three individual fragments are ibid. F5.87,110 and 128. The codex is constructed of cuts of parchment varying in shape and size.
