  • Vatican City Italy Biblioteca del Vaticano Reginensis Latinus 267 (foll. i, 1–98)
Script Uncial
Date VI–VII (501 - 700)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably in Spain. The two parts of the MS on different parchment and by different hands were manifestly written at the same time, as is proved by the peculiar position of the prickings for ruling. It was certainly at Fleury by the ninth century: the Fleury ex-libris saec. IX, found on fol. 1v, was altered later to that of St Martial, Limoges. There are marginalia in ninth-century Visigothic and in Notae Tironianae. The MS belonged to Paul Petau (†1614).

Script Commentary

Script a graceful and well-formed uncial: certain letters, especially the cross-stroke of T, have often a characteristic ornamental hair-line; N is distinctly broad. The first fly-leaf (fol. i), a discarded leaf, contains part of the preface in uncial by the scribe of the MS; the same text is found again on foll. 4v–5.
