This folio was made in the first half of the fourteenth century in Siena, Italy. It was illuminated by Niccolò di ser Sozzo and was part of a big antiphonary. The V initial is an historiated initial with the Assumption. Inside the V, within a blue mandorla, the Virgin is being raised by a choir of angels. The margins are decorated with foliage in vibrant colors.
