a| Halper: Seems to be part of a transcription, in Hebrew characters, of an Arabic book modelled after the Maḳamat of al-Ḥariri.
a| The folio opens with seven verses in wafir meter rhymed -אל (i.e., َال-). The next paragraph is in prose, from the words of the raṿi (narrator), as stated in the heading קאל אלראוי. The hero's name seems to be ʻAntar (no doubt after the name of the famous poet of the pre-Muhammedan era).
a| Halper: the orthography is sometimes vulgar. Thus מא תקר בהי עיני (verso l. 1).
