The fragment is perforated for ruling (10 mm) along the margins. Wrinkles all over the fragment, mainly in the top half.
Decoration: 
Red and blue initials, some with filigree.
Inscriptions: 

Inscriptions on the verso. On the right-hand side "46" is written in red ink. Another modern hand added "Caixa 285, n. 9" in blue ink. Along the upper-left corner there is a three-line inscription which provides reference on the provenance of the fragment: "Sta Eulalia d'Orvacem" (first line); "Ervacem [...] S. Onaio" (second line); "Ervacem" (third line). Orbacém (civil parish of Caminha) is located ca 50km north-west of Braga.
