Two leaves, not adjacent, perhaps originally a bifolium, from the C section of a Latin dictionary, written in Italy in the late 13th century. Entries written in 2 columns, with paragraph marks at the beginning of each entry and the beginning of the continuation of an entry on a new page alternating between red and blue. The first leaf has the conclusion of the entry for celum, entries for cerebrum, certitudo, cibus, circulus, circumcisio, circumcisio Christi, and the beginning of an entry for circumscriptio. The second leaf has entries for color, columba, comedere, comodum, commune, and comparatio. The entries seem to cite uses of these words in other works. Used in a 16th-century binding, with edge of spine lettering visible at the left margin of the recto of the first leaf. The name Alberti is inscribed on both leaves (f. 1v, 2r) by a later hand.
