Origin and Provenance

Written probably in France. Provenance Corbie, where it was certainly preserved in the twelfth century, since the Amiens leaf served as a fly-leaf of part of the Maurdramnus Bible and the title of this part in mixed uncial is of the end of the twelfth century (fol. 1v). The eighteenth-century Corbie ex-libris and the number 165 are found on fol. 2 of the Amiens manuscript.

Script is a heavy type of half-uncial: a is open; G, M, and N are regularly uncial, uncial E and F nearly so; the middle stroke of N is low and somewhat curved; the shoulder of r is markedly sickle-shaped; uncial E with cedilla is used. For other details see Vatic. Regin. Lat. 329 in CLA 1.**(p.32).
