Explanation: This is a total guess, but I've come across this before in other legal documents where there is a stand-alone paragraph under a clause. In other words, instead of "paragraph one, paragraph two, etc." you have just "Paragraph one of one".
This may not be the answer for your document, though, if the clause/paragraph layout matches what is shown in your question (i.e. two paragaphs in the clause). Unless of course there is a mistake in the layout of the source text.
There shouldn't be any mistake in the paragraph layout because I was given this doc in pdf format and I converted it - the original has 2 paragraphs to clause 13...
Unless, of course, the mistake was in the original contract... I suppose that's possible... But, in a contract?! Don't people check this stuff!
Explanation: The symbol here is probably not 2.Único but (paragraph squiggle).Único.
The normal rule, however, is to write Sole Paragraph in full: Parágrafo Único.
This is the only possibility that comes to mind right now.
