Aleppo Codex - A page from the Book of Judges

The manuscript known as the Aleppo Codex or simple the "Crown" (Keter) is the oldest extant nearly complete Hebrew Bible (Old Testament). It is considered by many scholars to be the most exact and authoritative Hebrew Bible and served as a source of text, cantillation and vocalization of the Bible – both in the past and present.
