Notes:
A fragment from an antique Aggadic text on Psalms, not the common Midrash Shoḥer ṭov.
Fol. 1 starts with the incipit citing Psalm CIV 4 as the subject of the article.
Fol. 2 is on ibid. 6. Both articles deal with the topic of slander. Some of the material is Talmudic, with slight alterations. This includes Yerushalmi Peah I 1, (contracted as in Midrash Rabbah Leviticus XXVI) on fol. 1 verso, and a short citation of Megillah 13a on fol. 2 verso (followed by the reference כולו במגילה עד, end of line 16). There are also named Amoraic passages that have no known parallel in Talmud and Midrashim.
