Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, probably Italy, but an ancient Roman centre like Lyon is not to be excluded. The Paris leaves, acquired by the Bibliothèque Nationale in 1888, had been removed from the Lyon volume by Libri. The forged ex-libris 'Est Sancti Petri de Perusio' stands on fol. 1.

Script Commentary

Script is an expert, graceful uncial of the oldest type, with most letters confined between two lines. In Greek words the letters follow the Latin canon and some are wrongly formed (foll. 94, 127). Various marginal entries: 'ucusque' in ancient cursive (fol. 117v); 'liccio regum' in crude letters saec. VII (fol. 34), to be compared with a similar entry in Lyon 403, fol. 94v (CLA 6.771); other entries on foll. 32, 44v. The name 'Sendelenus' first in monogram and then written out (saec. VII–VIII) occurs on fol. 276. Notae Tironianae on fol. 15v.
