Folio 62

…because they were driven out of Egypt and could not delay…’ Recto there is no decoration. Verso, The scribe left almost the whole of fthe page for a depiction of the bitter herbs, but the crude illustration we now see was not executed in the Middle Ages, although it may have been based on models from the fourteenth century. The vegetable, commonly portrayed in a highly stylized manner, was no longer understandable to the later artist, and the red holder with which it is sometimes shown seems to have been misunderstood by the artist, who interpreted it as a red crescent.
Leaf size is approximately 255 x 190mm (10 x 7.5in)
