The Agalot

Updated

Here's a picture of the Agalot from Parshat Naso (Bemidbar 7:3-8):



Taken from here which took it from the Warsaw 5622 edition of the Ra"n on Perek Hazorek (Shabbat 98a).

Update 5/31/12: I added the link to the Ra"n above.

Amazing.
Is that 8 wheels and places for 2 or 4 animals pulling?
Is this one vehicle or two side by side? Looks like one.

2 wagons side-by-side making a double-wagon, but carrying the same Kerashim. Each double-wagon would carry 24 Kerashim. There was room for 2 animals per wagon, which means that there were 4 animals pulling the double-wagon. Since there were 2 double-wagons, there were 8 animals altogether pulling 48 Kerashim and other Keilim.
