Rubric on page xxvj: "Orationes que dicende sunt per totam septimanam [per horas] diei".
Type of script
Type of notation

Black and red initials, some with very simple decoration in red, black or green. Text in black, rubrics in red ink. Aquitanian notation on a red line.

Number "15" written in red ink by a modern hand on the left side of page xxiii. On the same page, on the lower edge there is an annotation written reversed with respect to the text but it is now almost completely vanished. On page xxvi there are two annotations made by two different hands. The annotation in blue ink is "Caixa 247 nº 6", the other annotation (most ancient) is "Ballazar e Gondifellos [...]". The latter gives us information about the original provenance of the fragment (Balasar and Gondifelos are located ca 35 km south-west of Braga).
Condition of document

Central bifolio slightly damaged. Despite some stains and three holes the fragment is quite readable. Folds and strings suggest that it was used as book cover.
