Psalm: 12
Iconography: David asks Christ 'How long will you forget me?' Christ, seated on a throne holds up a book with those words.
Art: On this page the initial was drawn first and the script wrapped around it, particularly clear in the line at the bottom of the initial.The gilding is rough and hasty. Pp73-74, 91-92 form the outer bifolio of quire 6 and , as observed by Peter Kidd, are written by a different hand to the rest of the psalter, namely Scribe 6.
Thread stitch: yes, with red threads
Historical Relevance:
Quire: recto of last bifolio of quire 6, added later
