Source type
Document type
13th - 14th century
Type of script

Simple decoration: plain initials in red, black, blue and green. Display script in red. Text and notation in black. Aquitanian neums (Portuguese variety, early stage) around a red line.

"11" written in red ink between the two columns at the top of fol. 2r. Two marginal annotations on fol. 2v refer to the Gospel readings. On the same page - between the two columns - there is an unreadable annotation written by a modern hand, probably in Portuguese. At the bottom of fol. 7 v there are some annotations written reversed with respect to the text. These annotations provide information on the provenance of the fragment "Amares e Besteiros" (the two cities are located ca 15 km north-east of Braga). A more modern hand added "240 n° 11" in blue ink on the same page.
Condition of document

Bifolium in good condition despite the fact that it remained folded for long time. Along the vertical fold there is a remnant of the original stitching. Two small holes on fol. 2, stains of dirtiness at the bottom of fols. 2r and 7v.
