These two ff. present traces of a diplomatic document probably contemporary to the rest of the MS, and various other inscriptions. Cf. Lathuillère 1966: 54, who indicates, among other inscriptions, at the top of f. 2r "De Tricose", in the center "Cela sans plus. Dunnois. De la Tremoille. au demourant. Jehan du Fou" and at f. 226 "Anno Domini millesimo CCCCXII indictione XII die Martis".
