Decoration: 3- and 4-line initials are written on the inner vertical bounding line; one of them is a plain red square capital "I"; the others are brown square capitals filled with red foliate ornamentation; 1-line initials are brown, highlighted with red; rubrics written in red minuscule; punctuated with the punctus, punctus elevatus, and punctus versus. Script: written in Beneventan script. The fragment was used as a wrapper for another volume; it is possible that this leaf is the one listed by E.A. Lowe in "A New List of Beneventan Manuscripts," in Collectanea Vaticana in honorem Anselmi M. Card.
