Copious early marginal notes in one hand, including comments on the text, ‘nota' marks, and pointing hands, also underlining in the text. On a6v an inscription beneath the author's colophon, recording the oration at Jason de Mayno's funeral given by ‘Sapia': ‘In qua ecclesia minorum [S. Jacobus, Pavia] sepultus est [ ] Jas[on] ipse sub(?) anno 1519 paulo ante pasca die xxv Aprilis in cuius funere orationem luculentam et meritam habuit <S> Sapia jurisconsultus celebris et doctor papie splendidus'; Sapia is presumably to be identified with Sebastiano Sapia (1462-1523), professor of jurisprudence (see IBI IV 1241).
