Physical Description:
f. 1 : parchment ; 240 x 185 mm.
Materials:
parchment
Notes:
Script: Copied by one hand writing Carolingian script.
“Cap. XV” in art. 1 is written in Uncialis in red ink, and the opening letter V, in the same colour, is a 2-line initial. In art. 2 all the opening capitals (D, Q, S or U) are said to be likewise red, but their colour is hardly distinguishable from the colour of the text.
The fragment was perhaps the final leaf of a codex, which would explain the smudges and offsets visible on the verso.
