Script is a large rather gauche uncial in which letters are poorly joined and do not stand on the ruled line: the bow of A is roundish; the upper loop of B is small and triangular; the tail of G sweeps down to the left; the middle stroke of N is thin and joins the second upright well above the base-line. For other details see CLA 3.**342.
Three folios survive: one at Nancy and two, a bifolium, at Milan (7 folios, fly-leaves in Turin manuscripts, perished in 1904; the front and back fly-leaves of Milan I. 6 sup., treated in CLA 3.349, may belong here too); the Nancy leaf is folded in two and forms the front fly-leaves numbered A, B in a manuscript of 95 folios containing Latin grammarians in minuscule saec. IX (the back fly-leaves numbered C, D are fragments of a Computus in Irish minuscule saec. IX); cut down to 220 × 170 mm. ⟨177×ca. 153 mm.⟩ in 21 long lines.
