|Date||VI (501 - 600)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain; the answer may lurk in the undeciphered part of the subscription reproduced in CLA. The manuscript was written by a scribe under Eastern influence, to judge by the script, position of quire-marks, colophon decoration and manner of dividing words. Was certainly at Lyon by the ninth century, since the volume was annotated by Florus Diaconus (†859/60). Provenance the chapter library of the Cathedral of Lyon.

Script is expert rapid uncial: the lower bow of uncial A is oval; L often goes below the line; B and R recall the forms characteristic of the legal type of uncial (CLA 2.211, 3.292, 295). A contemporary entry in sloping cursive stands at the end of the manuscript on fol. 202v; it reads '† . . . nte in . . . quantum potui emendaui et supercalcaui'. An entry ('hic est') in Merovingian cursive on fol. 10. Annotations by Florus Diaconus occur on many pages.
