|Date||V–VI (401 - 600)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Italy and later was apparently at Verona as the marginal entries by Pacificus suggest. Belonged to the library of the 'Comtes de Lyon', i.e. the Canons of the Cathedral. The manuscript probably reached Lyon in the ninth century to judge by the constant occurrence of ˹ and ˺ symbols used by Florus Diaconus (†859/60) to mark passages for excerpting.

Script is a graceful and expert half-uncial of an ancient type strongly recalling Verona 37 (35) (CLA 4.493) especially in the letters a, g, N, p, and z: f has the uncial form, g resembles a large S with a thin roof; the oblique of N is thin; o is often written within the bow of a preceding l; the shoulder of r bends down to the base-line; z has a prancing form and goes below the line (fol. 322v); ligatures occur: ge, re, li, ti. Marginalia in contemporary slanting half-uncial with uncial R (foll. 9, 258, 314v). A few notes in early Caroline seem to be in the hand of Pacificus of Verona. The Nota Tironiana 'usque hic' occurs often.
