letters AYIN to PEH SOFIT

the letter AYIN

ayinani for stam plus

1. the first [part of the] letter should be like a yud 2. and initially its face should incline a little upwards.  3. and its body should be lengthened below it in its standing a little (for if it is lengthened [too] much at an angle one would not be able to put another letter near the ayin)  4. and in it there should be a zayin standing straight  5. and touching the thigh below its half [way point] 6. and one should make on top of the zayin three taggin...
