On the verso of this leaf, the first Repsonsory of Matins for the feast of St. John the Evangelist begins with the three-line initial in red and purple historiated with a bust portrait of the Saint. This leaf is consecutive and was formerly conjoint with Stiftsbibliothek St. Paul im Lavanttal Frag. 54/8, no. 2.
