Section 2.6 says:

We take
the first 256 bits or the serialized state, and use those as the one-
time Poly1305 key: the first 128 bits are clamped and form "r", while
the next 128 bits become "s".

It should say:

We take
the first 256 bits of the serialized state, and use those as the one-
time Poly1305 key: the first 128 bits are clamped and form "r", while
the next 128 bits become "s".

Notes:

“We take the first 256 **or** the serialized state”. Should be **of**.
