The Aquitanian notation is of an Iberian variety. The fragments ("Fragmentos") 1, 11, 12, 14, 16, 18, 21 and 22, held in the Archivo Capitular de la Catedral de Tui, belonged originally to one and the same Antiphoner. The "Fragmento 16" belonged originally to the same quaternion of this "Fragmento 12". They previously served as covers or binding material for a register book (see "Inscriptions and marks" above, where the inscriptions identify the book).
