- Initial M with a Dominican friar, possibly St. Dominic
- This initial may begin the first response for the first nocturn of Matins for the feast of St. Dominic (Aug. 4), 'Mundum vocans ad Agni nuptias ...,' (Calling the world to the marriage of the Lamb) although neither the text on the reverse nor the iconography can confirm this identification. The identity of this Domincan friar is unclear as well. He does not have a halo, nor does he have any attributes that might help to identify him as the founder of the Dominican Order.
- This cutting can be dated to ca. 1470.
- This image shows the reverse of a cutting with an historiated initial from an antiphonary.
