The entire scene is filled with different tasks related to the grape harvest on a lord’s estate. Painted in cameo, at the bottom, there are children playing knucklebones. 
The scene at the bottom of the border on f. 28r depicts an ox slaughter. On the right side,  there is the representation of the “Libra” sign of the zodiac consisting of a pair of perfectly balanced scales alone. The mistake began in September when Libra was located in October instead of Scorpion.
