The words ‘t[r]ium marcharum’ are cancelled, the letters ‘A’ and ‘s’ (i.e. Andreas) being written above the cancelled words, and in the margin is substituted ‘decem librarum,’ with the note: Cassatum et correctum de mandato domini G[eraldi] episcopi Conseranen, An. de Adria.
3 The date was: Datum Rome apud Sanctos Apostolos decimoseptimo Kal. Julii Anno Duodecimo, which is followed by the autograph subscriptions: Ri xxviii, coldus and An. Correcta Sexto Kal. Octobris Anno Terciodecimo, de Adria. In the above date ‘decimoseptimo …. Duodecimo’ is cancelled, the above letters ‘A’ and ‘s’ being written above the cancelled words; and in the margin is substituted Undecimo Kal. Septembris Anno Terciodecimo, with the autograph note: An. correctum ut supra, de Adria, that is An. correctum de mandato … de Adria as in the preceding footnote.
