Script Uncial
Date VII (601 - 700)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, this portion was probably written in the same centre as the part that precedes it, both have the same size the same number of lines, the same Merovingian liturgical entries and are apparently copies of a Spanish exemplar. Was at Lyon by the ninth century, since it was read by Florus Diaconus (†859/60). The Paris leaves, removed by Libri, were acquired by the Bibliothèque Nationale in 1888. Libri’s forged inscription on fol. 13v reads: ‘Est S. Ioannis in Valle’.

Script Commentary

Script is uncial by a painstaking but not very expert hand: the bow of uncial A is small. A few marginalia in Merovingian cursive (foll. 162, 162v, 239, and Paris, foll. 11, 12v) include the names ‘Irincmodus’ (fol. 239) and ‘Agiricus’ (Paris, fol. 6v); ‘Placedus’, written with a stylus, stands upside down at the top of fol. 1 of the Paris manuscript. Notae Tironianae on foll. 242v, 244. Annotations in the hand of Florus on fol. 187.
