U of S Ege MS 19
This leaf has a beautiful historiated initial “A”
in the lower half of the left hand column. A historiated initial
is an ornamental letter decorated with figures of men or animals.
This one features a bear’s head on the body of a serpent.
In the margins of this leaf there are two scribal insertions.
The detail shows that a small symbol on the edge of each box is
repeated in the adjacent line, indicating where the insertion
is to be made.
