- Initial S with St. Peter of Rome with a monk
- This initial begins the response for the first nocturn of Matins for the feast of St. Peter (June 29), 'Simon Petre antequam de navi vocarem te novi te ...' (Simon Peter, before I called you from the ship, I knew you). St. Peter, the first bishop of Rome, is identified here by his bishop's miter and the symbolic keys to the Church, held in his left hand, that were given to him by Christ. The unidentified monk behind him may represent a member of the religious community that owned the original manuscript from which this cutting was taken.
