A leaf from the same manuscript was sold to a private collector by Maggs Bros. Ltd., in 1982; folio 2 of the Beinecke fragments was used as the spine in the binding of a book and the Maggs leaf formed the wrappers for the front and back covers of this volume. Decoration: a portion of the initial "P" of Book 3 is preserved, written in red; 1-line initials at the beginning of verses are in brown in a mixture of rustic capital and uncial forms; punctuated with the punctus. Script: written in late Caroline minuscule.
