fol. II.118r     

Between the tendrils in the lower margin is a tiny, frail David, wearing a short tunic, and a large crown, confronting with his sling the giant Goliath, who is wearing chain-mail, a golden helmet, and holds a shield in his left hand and a sword in his right. A horned goat’s head appears in grisaille on the shield. Animals, birds and hybrids are in the panel and the tendrils. — Illustrating “Book Seven”, dealing inter alia with the laws of gleaning, and alluding to the gleaning of Ruth, David’s ancestress, while Orpah was Goliath’s mother according to the Midrash.
