Page layout: 
Up to approx. 490 x 363 mm; two columns per page; column height and width: approx. 380 x 99 mm. 40 lines per page; above top line. Page ruling remains clearly visible on recto.
Decoration: 
Illuminated initial including blue and yellow tints for first responsory. Its zoomorphic forms display "dragon heads" (Suárez González, p.21). Flourished initials appear with red, green, yellow and purple/blue tints.
Inscriptions: 

When in use as a book cover, details of the bound book were added and remain partially visible on the verso.
On the recto the archive's stamp with pencilled siglum PM 3 identifies the parchment fragment.

Remarks: 

This single folio fragment was used as the outer cover in the binding of a collection of notary documents from mid sixteenth-century Toro produced by the notary Francisco Gonzalez de Valderas. Damage has resulted from use as binding material including loss of parchment from outer margins, holes, dirt, obscuring of content, and mainly marginal inscriptions.

The pictures were supplied on request by the Archive.
