The fragment contains the end of the prayer text, as the writing ends in the middle of fol. 2v.
The text is a variant of the standard Gaonic Seliḥot that appear in Kitāb jāmiʾ aṣ-ṣalawāt wat-tāsābīh for Yom Kippur (Sidur Rav Seʹadyah Rav Gaon / Israel Davidson ... [et al., ed.]. Yerushalayim : Meḳitse nirdamim, 1963, p. 307 l. 17- p. 309 l. 2) based heavily on biblical phrases and paraphrases.
Unlike Saadia, here the prayer ends with the Blessing : ברוך אתה יי׳ חנון ומרב[ה] לסלוח, as it may be a supplement to the regular, weekday ʻAmidah.
