Except for the first leaf, the leaves and the boards each have two holes. A brownish cord, which goes through those two holes, binds all of the leaves and the boards together.
An oval label is attached to one of the boards, marked with “no name” and “1 vol.”
There are 27 leaves in this manuscript. Only leaf number 5 up to leaf number 25 are inscribed.
