Sling in 13th Century Spanish Hebrew Manuscript

From an Anglo-Saxon group I belong to... David's sling in a fragment of a Hebrew manuscript dated 1301 from the town of Tudela in Navarre, Spain...

Great picture.  I do wonder what the writing says.

Interesting. It looks almost like a balearic sling with a woven part in between the sides of the pouch.

Once, Toivo and Eino were building a house, but as Toivo worked, he would occasionally throw a nail over his shoulder. When Eino asked why he was being so wasteful, he said, “The heads are on the wrong side!” Eino looked at him and said, “You dummy, those are for the other side of the house!”

A Balearic? Nope. The letter is closed

It's definitely not balearic in pouch design, but the cords look like those of a balearic sling.

Now that I think about it, all that it would have in common with a balearic sling is the presence of braided cords. Tongue
