13th century
Type of script
Type of notation

Plain initials in red and blue. Two very simple pen-flourished initials ("I" on fol. Ar and "I" on fol. Bv). Text in black ink.

"23" was written in red ink at the top of fol. Ar, between the two columns. On the same page, on the left side, a modern hand wrote "Caixa 243, nº 15" in blue ink. At the bottom of the page there is a big annotation "Santa marimba de lousado", which gives us information about the provenance of the fragment. Santa Marinha de Lousado is located ca 30 km south-west of Braga. Immediately below this inscription there is another one now almost completely vanished (in yellow ink).
Condition of document

Bifolio in good condition, however, the upper edge was trimmed with loss of contents (about two text lines and notation are missing). Ruling pricks visible on both folios. A hole can be found on the upper right angle of fol. Ar but it did not cause loss of contents. On fol. Ar there is the remnant of a library sticker, now removed. It can be read here "Anno de 1546". Two dirty spots on fol. Br.

Page layout

Unknown. Catchword on Bv.
