Plain or slightly decorated capitals and initials, in red.
Inscriptions and marks:
On folio Br, rubric starting: "Ab octavis pentecostem usque in aventum (sic) domini et ab octavis epiphanie usque in septuagesima ... ". On folio Bv, on upper half, there is an enframed inscription, in brown: "Real Provision ganada en el Consejo al Ayuntamiento p[ara?] q[ue?] no suban a[l?] Monte r[eal?] las Procesiones de Corpus y las mas [que?] se esp[r?]esan. año de 1805". If "Monte Real" is the correct interpretation of the mentioned locus in this inscription, it might refer to the locality of Monte Real (a medieval fortress), in Baiona, having in mind that two parchments of the group of fragments originally belonging to the same Antiphoner of the present fragment 22 have inscriptions that mention Baiona or related places.
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. They previously served as covers or binding material for a register book (see "Inscriptions and marks" above, where the inscriptions identify the book).
