  • Vatican City Italy Biblioteca del Vaticano Basilicanus D. 182 (foll. 13–27, 34–288)
Script Half-Uncial
Date V–VI (ante 509–510) (501 - 508)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Cagliari by North African exiles in the school of Fulgentius of Ruspe and Fulgentius Ferrandus and doubtless corrected by one of them. One leaf, fol. 12, is restored saec. VIII by a hand showing Visigothic symptoms (see No. 1c). On fol. 201 ‘liber iste sanctus est’ is added in Corbie a-b script, ca. 800. On fol. 33v, the last blank page of an added quire, a tenth-century hand entered Ekkehard’s verses on St Benedict.

Script Commentary

First line of each book in red. Corrected throughout the half-uncial part by an expert reader who wrote ‘contuli’ beside each quire-mark (except that on fol. 288v, at that time the blank last page), and beside the colophon of each book. On fol. 288 is ‘contuli in nomine domini iesu christi aput karalis constitutus anno quarto decimo transamundi regis’, i.e. Caralis (Cagliari in Sardinia) AD 509–10. Annotated by an almost contemporary hand in sloping uncials with interesting abbreviations.
