- Initial M
- This initial begins an undetermined passage in Florus of Lyon's commentary on the Epistles of Paul. Florus was a theologian, canonist, liturgist, and poet active in Lyon in the first half of the ninth century. The white-vine scroll decoration is very typical of manuscript illumination associated with the monasteries during the Romanesque period. It was later borrowed by illuminators of Humanist manuscripts who thought they were copying ancient manuscripts from the Classical period.
