Parchment, 1 folio cut in halves in the middle of the height, 510 x 240 mm.??

Written in Beneventan script.
Red headings. Heightening of the majuscules in red and yellow. 5-line initials in same colours.
The fragments were used in a binding and are stained with paste. The outer edge is heavily
trimmed and 8 rectangular cuttings have caused important text losses in the outer column. On the
verso we see at the top, in the middle and at the bottom of the leaf the offset of texts written on
a flyleaf?? of the binding from which the fragments were taken [to be read with a mirror]. In the
inner margin of the same verso is an un deciphered nineteenth-century inscription. The fragments
are taken from a printed book preserved in the Beinecke Library (Zi.+4428): Bonaventura,
Commentarius in secundum librum sententiarum Petri Lombardi (Venice, 1477).
