There is a decorative headband on f. 77r; the initial letters of the psalms are decorated, and the other initial letters are coloured. On the upper margin of f. 66r there is a note in Sicilian dialect, written in Greek characters: ιστι βοννου κιστ(ο)υ ψαλμο(ο)υ αδδιρι ον(ν)ι μάτινα περκι νον βεδιρανε […] ρα πενα αλλου φερνου. The note refers to Ps 68.Text-type: L.
