||... rursum presentem chartulam sacrato signo roborauerunt.
*As with the Northumbrian council, where the word 'charta' was used, 'chartula' here may well indicate that the document was a papyrus one, which would have facilitated the placing of crosses against the names on a separate sheet. (Papyrus continued in use for solemn papal documents well after AD 786.)
