Bibliothèque nationale de France, Département des Manuscrits, NAL 2334, folio 50r. Also known as the Tours Pentateuch. A Latin illuminated manuscript of the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament). This manuscript is probably from the late 6th or early 7th centuries (with later additions), but a 5th century date has also been claimed. It was probably made in Roman North Africa, Spain, Syria or provincial Italy.


From the same manuscript:
Esau.
Joseph supervises the harvest in the years of plenty.
The Hebrews forced to build an Egyptian city.
The Hebrews forced to make brick.
Pharaoh's army drowns.
