Medical text based on Celsus' De medicina with additions from Isaak ben Salomon Israeli's Viaticum and further recipes. Fragm. lat. 134a was the upper half, 134c the lower half of one bifolium, while Fragm. lat. 134b was the upper half and Fragm. lat. 31 the lower half of another bifolium. They used to be to consecutive bifolia in a quire, whereby the bifolium with Fragm. lat. 134b und Fragm. lat. 31 was the central one.

Two strips probably belonging to these two leaves are still preserved in situ in Leipzig, UB, Ms 926. The width of Fragm. lat. 31 and 134 corresponds to the height of Ms 926, which further support the suggestion that Ms 926 used to be the host volume for the now loose fragments.
