The large initial "P" seen in the lower left is embellished with a fantastic pattern of intricate floral design that trails off above and below. The first section of rubrication above the "P" announces the prologue to Timothy II. The small, isolated words written in the margins are insertions into the text, omitted by the scribe who originally wrote the page. Tiny markings indicate where the insertions belong. Starting with the letter "P" of Paulus, the text, which contains a letter form the apostle Paul to Timothy, reads as follows: "Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, according to the promise of life which is in Christ Jesus..."
