Beatrix, the wife of the late Colratus Cavallerii, appears in court. She had been the guardian for her three children, Giraudetus, Bartholomeus, and Raymundetus, but the role has been assigned instead to her new husband, Guillelmus de Vellancio. Guillelmus takes charge of compiling the inventory, beginning with a substantial list of clothes. This inventory is unusually interesting for the number of references to items belonging to Colratus that Beatrix had sold off to pay for funeral expenses or other unstated purposes. It also mentions a garment that was intended to be worn while leaving the baths and describes a garment lined with an unusual fur, sirogrillus, scilicet "choerogryllus" in the DMLBS. The most remarkable objects in this inventory may be two goblets made from the shells of coconuts (nux indie).
