RE: VMs: Codex Urbinate Latino 998...

BTW, can anyone help to read the top lines of text on these pages (ie, who each cipher was for)?

(1) I'm not sure about at all - any ideas?

(2) looks like it is in the Tranchedino scribe's clear hand, and reads something like:-
Cum comite Franc[o] Maria
[...this can only be referring to Francesco Maria Sforza, surely? More later...]

(3) looks like it is in two hands, and reads something like:-
	Cum ser Iovaneo de canebiana. die xxv ja?? 1443 ?????????
	+ cum fratre antonio de diogio

Thanks for putting this up. My off the cuff reading is

Cum m[a]g[ist]ro d[omi]no Napuleono de Vrsinis cum permo d[omi]no de Vrsinis in hoc (?) die 6 maj
et ??? xxij svper 1469 (?)

Cum Comite Franco Sforcia

Cum Ser Lodouico de Canebrana die xxv Jan (?) 1445 ad Br (?) M (?)
et cum fratre antonio de anogio

If I am right about the first one, it is interesting that Napuleono was used as a name so long ago.
