This cutting can be dated to ca. 1300.
This leaf is from a copy of the Corpus iuris civilis, a compendium of Roman law commissioned in 529 by the Byzantine emperor Justinian and compiled by the legal scholar Tribonian. The Corpus comprises three parts: the Digest (or Pandectae), the Institutions, and the Codex. The initial Q begins Book VI of the Codex, the part that contained all of the extant imperial constitutions from the time of Hadrian.
