Bifolium badly damaged. Folio B has a severe vertical cut: the page is reduced to about 1/4 of its original size.
The two pages of the bifolium are not consecutive. The folds and the lateral cut suggest that the fragment was used as a bookbinding. There is a small library sticker on fol. Ar with the shelf-mark "12".
