Script Uncial
Date VI (501 - 600)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy and probably in the region that produced the manuscript of Libri Regum (CLA 6.797). Was probably at Fleury as early as the ninth century to judge by added punctuation. The Hague fragment belonged to the Jesuit Collège de Clermont in Paris (cf. the pale entry on fol. 1 'Paraphé . . .') and was acquired by Gerard Meerman with the bulk of the college library in 1764.

Script Commentary

Script is a careful regular uncial: the bow of uncial A is thin and narrow; the bows of B meet before the upright; leans to the right; the hasta of F rests on the base-line; the bow of R is rather low; S is top-heavy.
