Notes:

2          There is an apex-like mark over q which we take to indicate the abbreviation of qui (see above, p.75). This is the only clear example of a marked abbreviation of this word (cf. 145).

4          There is a mark at the left-hand edge which, if it is ink, may be an ascender from a line below.
