|Date||VIII² (751 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written possibly at Flavigny. The Flavigny ex-libris, on fol. 115 in Rustic capitals (saec. IX–X), with letters alternating between the right margin and the intercolumnar space, reads: 'LIBER SANCTI PETRI FLAUINIACENSIS'. Belonged later to the cathedral of Autun, then to the Autun Seminary where Libri dismembered it. The Paris part stolen by him (No. 16 in his collection) was bought by Lord Ashburnham, from whom the Bibliothèque Nationale acquired it in 1888.

Script is a bold artificial uncial: the form of B is curious with the lower bow open and hook-shaped; LL run together; NT-ligature formed by a small T placed over the second upright of N is used frequently. In the lower margin of fol. 123 is the entry 'ELDRADUS', in hollow capitals written upside down. Neumes added over entire passages (foll. 25–25v, 78, etc.) are, according to Dom Beyssac, of the Dijon type. Binding is ancient.
