First notice and desription of a hitherto unknown Sefer Tôrah parchment leaf, kept in the library of the Società Napoletana di Storia Patria, Naples. The fragment, well preserved and written in Sefardite style, maybe in North Africa, contains Numbers 2,8 - 5,20 and seems date back to the nineteenth century. How the leaf reached Neaples is not known: it is probably a gift, maybe stemming from the oriental collections of the judge Vittore Pansini (1875-1953): or formerly by the historian Nicola Ferorelli (1877-1951), who in the years 1908-1915 also presented to the same Society an ancient Hebrew document , a marriage contract from Calabria dated 1428, now lost.
