Comments: Two lateral holes. Blank area, generally roundish, around each hole. Larger area around left lateral hole than right. The left hole itself has been worn larger on all folios. Except for f.1 this does not interfere with the text. Black powder rubbed into incisions, except on f.1 and on the last eight unnumbered folios. Those folios without the black powder cannot be read due to the coloration of the fronds. The folios appear old and stained, but are generally in good condition. F.81 has been broken in half and sewn together with a few stiches of string. Two-thirds of f.1 is missing. A few folios only are badly chipped, destroying parts of text. Edges of folios have been stained, but most of the stain has worn off. After the brahmana, on f.148 recto, there is the Mahavrata. F.148 verso is blank. On f.1 recto there appears to be an index. The last eight folios appear to contain a number of prayers and one somewhat lengthy text. Stained wooden covers.
