This leaf is labeled by Ege as an Italian lectionary from the mid twelfth century. The vellum is thin, supple, and barely yellowed, measuring 33 x 24cm. The text is revived Carolingian minuscule, another example of which can be seen in leaf 01. The ink is primarily dark brown with minimal fading with phrases highlighted in red and blue. See Denison University Leaf 03 for more information on this manuscript.

Text: Luke 24:40-47; then John 21:1-2 (verso). A scan of the recto is not currently available.

Reconstruction Note! In Ege's original manuscript, this leaf was followed by what is now Leaf 03 in the Ohio State University portfolio.
