E-ZAahp Archivo Histórico Provincial de Zamora 003
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.
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. This and fragment E-ZAahp Perg. Mus. 1 have significant features in common; the two fragments may once have been part of the same book.
The pictures were supplied on request by the Archive.
