|Date||IV–V (380 - 420)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in Italy. At Lorsch from the ninth century until the middle of the sixteenth. Seen there by Sebastian Münster (1489–1552); probably to be identified with a MS in the oldest Lorsch catalogue.
|TM Number||TM 65875|
|Contents||Vergilius, Bucolica, Georgica, Aeneis (fragm.).|
|Name||Vergilius Palatinus. (P)|
Script very expert, recalling the Vergilius Romanus (CLA 1.19): uncial G occurs, and twice a kind of uncial E; B and F rise above other letters. Some pages begin with a large letter. Later marginalia and insertions in minuscule saec. IX, some (e.g. ‘ignes’ on fol. 194) suggesting a centre under Insular influence, no doubt Lorsch.
