Folio 12r Commentary
|f12r Text: The hyena. The bonnacon.
Illustration: The bonnacon is an Asian beast whose head is like
a bull but his horns curl inwards so that they do not harm the victim.
When the bonnacon is chased he expels dung which burns a wide area.
The illustration shows the wise hunter protecting himself with his shield,
mentioned in other texts but not here.
Pricking and ruling are visible. The letter 'i' in the right margin is an initial indicator. The initial is type 2. The hunter's axe extends beyond its frame and overlaps the text.
