Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain. The whole manuscript belonged to the monastery of St Amulph of Metz. The Metz leaves had been removed from Metz MS 79. The manuscript to which the 2 Montpellier leaves are attached has the erased ex-libris saec. XII: 'Iste lib e sci arnulphi' (fol. 186v). It came into the possession of Pierre Pithou (his signature is on foll. 1 and 186v) who presented his collection to the Oratory of Troyes, whence it passed to the municipal library of Troyes and thence ca. 1804 to the Faculty of Medicine of Montpellier.

Script Commentary

Script is bold uncial not of the oldest type, with strokes often ill-joined: the bow of uncial A is round and hangs above the line; the lower bow of B is broad and protrudes; the upright of R goes below the line.
