It is not part of the project to provide a definitive edition of the text of the Bestiary, but to help readers by providing a transcription and translation of the text. Currently the following editorial conventions obtain:
The female monkey gives birth to twins, loving one and hating the other. When hunted, she carries the loved one in her arms while the other clings to her back. Eventually she tires, drops the favoured baby and the other one is saved. The ape does not have a tail.
Pricking and margins are visible. Initial indicator 's' in left margin. Initial type 2. Prick marks for pouncing are visible all around the image. There is a faint sketch of a dog facing right, in the bottom right margin. It is the same type of animal as on f.5r.
The satyr, like the ape, has some similarities with man. He is partly like a goat with a beard, horns, and broad tail. His rather human body is covered with shaggy hair. He holds his thyrsus or wand, used in his lustful and disorderly revels. His face is quite attractive and he makes pantomime gestures.
Below him the illustration of a hart has been excised. In the centre of the lower margin is a very faint 'c', indicating the start of the next quire. Pricking and ruling are visible. Initial indicator 'c' in right margin. Initial type 2.
