Fragment of an excerpt from the Book of Leviticus, copied around 800. It comprises verses 15.20-18.6, which contain purity laws (chap. 15), regulations for the ritual celebration of the day of atonement (chap. 16), laws governing the eating of meat and the rituals related thereto (chap. 17), as well as God’s demands to keep His commandments and a regulation concerning marriage and chastity (chap. 18). This copy, which generally corresponds to the Vulgate, constitutes a written record from the Rhaetian area.
