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:
A fine portrait including the peacock's tail.
The text says the bird is very hard to cook. In fact the peacock was a great aristocratic delicacy but perhaps it was not often eaten by the clergy involved with producing the text. The illustration is pricked all around for pouncing. Prick marks from the duck illustration on f.59r are visible. Initial indicator 'p' on left margin, in red. The frame overlaps the initial, type 2.
Folio mark 'CCCC', bottom left.
