The Israelites' flight.

This appears in a cycle of eight episodes which begins and ends on fol. 68v.

The Red Sea is divided into twelve paths, one for each of the twelve tribes, in accordance with the Targum Pseudo-Jonathan on Exodus XIV: 15-21. The paths form concentric semicircles. Above and to the left the Hebrews enter from Egypt, to leave at the bottom left near the Wilderness of Shur. The earliest evidence for this image is found in the Dura-Europos synagogue, but it also appears in the Sarajevo Haggadah (fol. 28r) and in Christian art. In Arragel's commentary to verse 29 the twelve paths are cited as a fifth miracle which took place during the crossing of the Red Sea.
