Page from Aleppo Codex, Book of Deuteronomy

The Aleppo Codex (כֶּתֶר אֲרָם צוֹבָא, Keter Aram Tzova) is a medieval bound manuscript of the Hebrew Bible. The codex was written in the 10th century AD. It is the oldest and most complete manuscript of the Hebrew Bible according to the Tiberian Massorah, produced and edited by respected scholar Aaron ben Moses ben Asher.

The Aleppo Codex is now available for browsing on a web site[1]. The codex has lost many pages consisting presently of 294 pages out of the original 487 (estimated to have been present)[2]. The codex is missing most of the first five books except for a few chapters of Deuteronomy, and is missing several of the books that come at the end of the Hebrew Bible including part of the Song of Songs, and all of Ecclesiastes, Lamentations, Esther, Daniel, Ezra, and Nehemiah[3].
