Characteristics of the lion.
Pricking and ruling visible.
The lion's enemies. The tiger.
The horseman has stolen a cub and has been pursued by the tiger. The thief can stop the tiger by a trick: he throws down a glass sphere and the tiger, seeing its own reflection, stops to nurse the sphere like a cub. She ends by losing both her revenge and her child.
The reflective glass sphere appears to be painted with tarnished silver. There is a '*' on the top right corner to indicate the second folio of quire B. Pricking and ruling are clearly indicated. In the right margin, a small cross, four lines above the image, and initial indicator 't' at lower right. Initial type 2.
