|Script||Mixed Pre-Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain. Palaeographical considerations and internal evidence suggest the vicinity of Lyon or Autun. The manuscript must have been at Lyon by the tenth century if one may judge by the mention of two Lyon bishops in the tenth-century insertion in the upper margin of fol. 219v: 'Uuido archieps [A.D. 928] alcherius eps [A.D. 926]....' Provenance the library of the Comtes de Lyon, i.e. the canons of the Cathedral.

Script is ungainly pre-Caroline minuscule by several hands, with marked intrusion of uncial elements: a has two forms, ꝺ is normally uncial, G and R regularly so in the main hand, uncial M and S frequently in other hands (foll. 83 ff., 192); e has a knob-like forestroke; i frequently goes below the line, especially at the beginning of a word; x has its lower left limb turned to the right; z thrusts boldly below the line; the cedilla of e is 6-shaped. Uncial A used as capital has the triangular form found in other Lyon and Autun manuscripts (CLA 6.718, 723 and CLA 5.691). Probationes pennae saec. IX contain the names Dodo (foll. 121v, 158v), Beztardus (fol. 153), Adalbertus (foll. 158v, 159), Ainardus (fol. 176), and Boso (fol. 191v).
