The present scroll is written in the characteristic thirteenth-century monumental Sephardic square script.In addition to the script, there are textual indicators that enable to identify the custom in which a manuscript was produced by examining certain scribal traditions which varied according to location. The biblical passages that lend themselves to this type of analysis are the two poetic songs included in the Pentateuch, "The Song at the Sea" (Shirat-haYam) Exodus 15 and "The Song of Moses" (ha-Azinu) Deuteronomy 32. The layout of the "Song of the Sea" in the present scroll follows the original, authentic version of Rabbi Meir ben Todros ha-Levi Abulafia Meir ben Todros HaLevi Abulafia c.
1170 1244, Burgos, Spain, also known as the Ramah where the final two lines of the song are not divided into only two sections, while Maimonides, following the Aleppo Codex, felt that the two final lines should be devided into two sections.

According to Abulafia and in agreement with the ancient Spanish traditions, Abulafia held the opinion that the poem should be written in 70 lines, as in our scroll, while Maimonides, again following the Aleppo Codex, felt that it should be written in 67 lines.
