[Scriptoris] Codex Aureus Question

I have a questions about the Canterbury Codex Aureus
inscription that I'm hoping someone can answer. On folio 11 of the
Codex Aureus (which can be found here:
http://www.soton.ac.uk/~enm/codexau.htm), there is a large X with
animal heads on two of the ends. Is that letter the versal, and part of
the wording, or is it just a graphic element, and not a letter?

If anyone happens to know, please tell me. :) Thanks!
