This manuscript shows writing very similar to the last few examples. Again we have a thick, stately hand with only a few very thin lines for contrast and no Serto-like features. The thin lines are in the right leg of the ālap (with a dot on the bottom), the center line of the hē, and in the descenders (or parts of them) of ṣādē and final kāp, mim, and nun. The spacing of the words is sometimes cramped.
