Along the upper-left corner there is a three-line inscription which provides reference on the provenance of the fragment: "Sta Eulalia d'Orvacem" (first line); "Ervacem [...] S.

The fragment is perforated for ruling (10 mm) along the margins. Wrinkles all over the fragment, mainly in the top half.
