In this folio from a Qur’an manuscript, a kufic line in gold leaf indicates the heading of Sura 10 (Sura Yunus) and the number of verses (109), while verses are written with a black ink in naskhi script. The end of a verse is marked by three gold reversed commas. The styles of script are indicative of Mamluk Qur’an production in 15th century Egypt.
