In the preserved fragments of a famous Torah scroll from the seventh or eighth century CE no orthographic differences occur with the text of the more recent Aleppo Codex, while there are orthographic differences with the other ancient Bible codices. The relationship between the scroll and the Aleppo Codex is looser as far as the division into sections is concerned, but the tradition according to which five specific lines must be written above Exodus 15:1–19 has this very scroll as its source.
