In the semicircles of the arches are blessings for the bride and groom. In the left side there is additional text at the bottom entitled ""lista,"" enumerating the dowry. The text is written in Sephardic script. The top of the ketubah is in the shape of a scalloped triangle. Within it is a circle which contains the verse from Deut. 28:8.
