Frontispiece (verso side)
Public Notes


This is a temporary catch-all title for the various miscellaneous scenes found as frontispieces in mss of the Shahnama. In cases of a double frontispiece, it is the right-hand (verso) side of the picture.

It also covers paintings elsewhere in the manuscript, e.g. at the division of the chapters or sections, which do not illustrate the stories of the Shahnama itself.
