Psalm 110 (Vulg., 109) -- 1) In initial D decorated with geometric and foliate ornament and with patterned spandrels, Christ, cross-nimbed, holds an open book with pseudo-inscriptions and sits in profile on the right side of God, cross-nimbed, who raises His right hand and holds a book in His left hand. Both sit on a bench and glance toward each other.
2) Margins - Rectilinear bars decorated with interlace and foliage, enclosing a head of a woman wearing a headdress, and inhabited by two birds, a dog pursuing a rabbit, a hybrid man, and a hybrid bird.
