Plain initials in red. Colour-stroked letters in red and black. Display script in red. Text and neums in black. Aquitanian notation on dry-point line.

Three inscriptions on fol. Ar. "90" is written in red ink (modern hand) between the two columns. Along the left margin: "Caixa 242, n° 2" written in blue ink (modern hand) and “Sam Salvador de Donim”. One unreadable later hand inscription was added on Bv, left column, at the end of responsory "Apparuerunt" (Cantus ID 006110). A second inscription, possibly by the same hand, is found below. Both inscriptions are written reversed with respect to the contents of the page.
Condition of document

Bifolium slightly damaged. The two pages are not consecutive. The fragment was used as a cover. The lateral margins are ripped; traces of thread-stitching along the perimeter of the fragment. The side Bv - Ar is in worse condition: the ink is vanished, folds and creases make the reading difficult. Patches of damp and dirtiness.
