|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written probably at Lyon while Leidrad was bishop (798–814) as is suggested by the fact that Burgundian and Bavarian scribes worked side by side; Leidrad, a native of Freising, apparently had scribes from Freising come to Lyon. Provenance the Cathedral of Autun, where the manuscript was seen by Dom Martène in 1707 (Voyage littéraire de deux religieux bénédictins, I, part 1, p. 155). The Paris part, stolen by Libri, was acquired by the Bibliotheque Nationale in 1888.

Script is in part an early minuscule of a distinct type akin to that of Flavigny: a resembles two contiguous c's; the shaft of h bends backwards; ꞇ has a closed loop to the left; ligatures with e, f, r are frequent, also nt, ti, tr; the hand of foll. 133 ff. strongly recalls South-east German script, that of fol. 138v the early script of Freising in Bavaria; the last quires (foll. 143–174) are in a heavier careless hand making use of uncial G (foll. 135, 149v). On fol. 60v in the margin is a ninth-century entry of the name 'teotgrimus'.
