Description This illuminated incipit page from Walters manuscript W.556 has a headpiece with an inscription in an Early Abbasid (Kufic) script that is now illegible due to damage. The headpiece is of geometric design in gold, white, and blue with a palmette medallion in the margin. The palmette has been cropped due to a later trimming of the manuscript.
