Qurʼan from early Abbasid.
A parchment leaf from an early Abbasid Qurʾan (Chapter 12
– sūrat Yūsuf, vv.74-76). Written with only three lines to the
page, this hand has a number of characteristic features such as
rounded sub-linear strokes on the final yāʾ and nūn and a hairline
descender (tail) on the final mīm. It is vocalized by red dots with
verse markers indicated by gold dots arranged in a triangle.
