Inscription

across top in red ink: Judith decollavit holoferenem hostem filiorum israel; lower left in red ink: Quia dilectus eius filius candidus et rubicundus decantatur / Tota eius passio comparatur fasciculo mirre / Qui commorari debet inter ubera diligentis anime. / Omnes autem penalitatos Christi maria diligenter college / Et conpassionem fasciculum mire ex ipsis comegit
