“Ok ganga at biþia”
“með þi at borgar”
The fragment is well preserved, although f. 2v is very dark, and in some places the text is almost illegible. Between the two leaves there are probably four leaves missing.
The fragment is written in long lines with 25 lines to f. 1r and 26 lines to 1v-2v. Initials and rubrics in red.
The fragment is written in two Icelandic Gothic bookhands
The first hand wrote 1r:1-11, 2r:1-6, and 2v:2-12.
The second hand wrote the rest of the text. This hand is comparable with that of AM 325 4to 3c and AM 325 4to 4a VIII.
In the margin of f. 1v, there is a note written in a seventeenth-century hand: “sælir komande heilege og biarni.”
The fragment is bound in a grey cardboard cover.
On the AM-slip Árni Magnússon says that he got the fragment from the Priest Snorri Jónsson (of Helgafell) in 1721.
