The suggested date and provenance of this leaf was arrived at from a note on the mount of another folio of the same manuscript. The style of the miniatures is related to mediaeval Arab book painting of the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries, but more provincially rendered. The three adjacent crescents in the watermark of the paper were used by the Ottomans from the end of the sixteenth century, and Yemen was part of the Ottoman Empire at the time.
