Foliation: 
There is no visible pagination/foliation. The lack of continuity in the rubrics implies that there were other folia inserted in-between.

Condition of document: 
This fragment was used as a book cover. Two pages are especially damaged. It has what appears to be water spots, and it seems to have been heavily used; some parts are illegible.
Decoration: 
Blue and red initials with red and blue decoration.
Remarks: 

The choice of Alleluias for Sundays 18-21 after Pentecost coincide with the use of Braga. Use of letter-clefs.
