Some wonderful ligatures (so to speak) here, intertwined letterforms. The flattened omega signs above the first line are standard scribal abbreviations indicating missing letters, usually “m” or “um” with this shape. Also notice the nested co, ce, ca, li, pe, tr, ti, and various other joined letters. There is a lot of life here, in the midst of death.
