Summary

Document written on parchment in Benevento, Italy, in 821, recorded in the document as the fifth year of the principate of Sicone (Licone di Aurenza). Record of a grant of level land in Murtula by Waldipertus (Gualdipertus), son of Adelpertus, to Lupus, Lampertus, Amipertus, and Walpertus (Gualpertus), sons of Bonepertus; Radeprandus, son of Radulus; and Adelprandus, son of Ragimpertus. Signed by 5 or 6 witnesses. Written in a single column of 23 lines in the provincial chancery script that developed from Ravenna cursive and from which developed Beneventan bookhand, already in use by this date. A 16th-century description on the verso incorrectly dates the manuscript to 854.
