Old lubeck - look out for brevigraphs!

I've just spotted a "per" brevigraph in the phrase on the bottom.

"Latus 16 personen" written once in full and once with the brevigraph. It looks like a p with a cross thru the tail.

This is from Latin, I've seen it in Olde (early modern) English parish registers.

Instruction from other projects (Warwick chimney tax) has been to expand the brevigraph to full form since there's no way to key it as seen.
