I've never seen a copy of Markus's book, but a good possibility is
the the single leaf from the Registrum Gregorii made in Trier,
probably in 983-84, by the so-called Gregory Master for Archbishop
Egbert, now Trier, Stadtbibl., MS 171/1626. It is quite widely
illuminated in books dealing with Ottonian manuscript illumination,
e.g. C.R. Dodwell, The Pictorial Arts in the West, 800-1200. If
this isn't the image, it probably should have been: it is splendid!
