If you were writing pointed text with a pe lefufah (or doubled/spiral pe, or pe kefulah) for pedagogical purposes, and the pe had a dagesh, would you write the dagesh inside the inner spiral, or inside the outer spiral but outside the inner one?

  • It just seems like a thing that must have come up before. I would settle for an example of someone marking it some way in a text, even if there isn’t an official answer.

I was beginning to despair, but found examples from תורה קדומה, a Teimani chumash.


Both Exodus 23:6 (marked with only ו) and 23:13 (marked יג) on the page contain examples of pe lefufah with a dagesh, and place it inside the outer spiral but outside the inner one.
