Summary

Vellum leaf from an Italian giant Bible, ca. 1125, trimmed and folded from use in a binding. The text on the recto is 2 Samuel 14.29-15.16 (part of the story of David's son Absalom; the page heading identifies the book as 2 Kings, as it was known in the Vulgate), written in a rounded Italian protogothic script, in 2 columns of 38 lines, with probably 4 lines lost at the bottom of each column due to trimming. The text on the verso is effaced. Running headings (Lib[er] on verso, Regu[m] II on recto) and a 2-line initial in red. A marginal roman numeral marks the beginning of Chapter 15 in the first column, and there is a guide letter to the left of the chapter number, but the initial has not been added.
