Condition of document: 
Damaged. The fragment is composed of three folios sewed together. The contents of the folios are not consecutive. Each folio has one side almost unreadable: Ar, Bv, Cr. The borders of each folio are irregularly trimmed with loss of contents: fol. A is now almost half of its original dimension, fol. B lacks part of the contents at the bottom. Folds and wrinkles are present on each folio, on B there is a tear at the bottom, in correspondence to the Introit "Misericordia Domini". There are many traces of humidity and dirtiness. Library sticker on Bv. Also, there is a piece of parchment sewed on fol. B, which covers part of the contents.
Decoration: 
Very simple decoration. Plain initials alternatively in blue or red. Display script in red. Text in black. Aquitanian neumes in black ink around a red line.
Inscriptions: 

A modern hand added on Br two lines of text. The first line is "A-5-4-116" and seems to be an ancient shelf-mark, the second line corresponds to the fragment shelf-mark "1370".

Remarks: 

From the same Missal as fragment C 1204 in the same archive.
