Folio 24 v° presents a very fine historiated letter Q in the centre of which Christ is portrayed enthroned in majesty. To his left sits a scribe, his desk on his knees, while the character on his right is carrying a sort of diptych. A dragon whose head is under the feet of Christ forms the tail of the letter. The style of this initial, traced in lined outline, without the addition of colour, is very similar to that of Hugo Pictor.
