|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written probably in North France, perhaps in the region of Corbie. The name of 'hildoinus abbas' which occurs in several probationes pennae suggests that the manuscript was at St Denis at the beginning of the ninth century. Belonged to Fr Pithou. Later at Troyes and Montpellier, whence it was stolen by Libri. It bore the number 10 in his collection; Libri’s forged entry: Mōsterii S. Zenonis maioris Uerone' stands on fol. 206v.

Script is a late artificial half-uncial verging on minuscule, and related in style to the Corbie a-b script: d and g occasionally have the uncial form; the shaft of l has a break near the base; y is short and dotted and occasionally both branches curve to the right. An addition in Corbie a-b script: 'Ad morbo regio' is seen on fol. 206v. On fol. 1v stands the contemporary probatio pennae in a-b script, 'hildoinus abbas'; the name of Abbot Hilduin is again entered on the upper margin of fol. 48 in Caroline minuscule; the name 'hagmerad' occurs on fol. 1v and ‘hagmeradus' on foll. 206v and 207. Notae Tironianae are found on fol. 187.
