Origin and Provenance

Written presumably at Fleury since it was probably there that the unpalimpsested part of the original Sallust manuscript (CLA 6.809) was used for strengthening bindings. Provenance Fleury (cf. CLA 6.804). The Berlin leaf, which formed part of the Orléans fragments, was bought by Heine in 1847 from a dealer in Toledo.

Script Commentary

Script is an ungainly uncial by at least two hands (one hand recalls Orléans 192, fol. 28 + Paris Lat. 8305, foll. 1–2; see CLA 6.812): the bow of uncial A is oval and often hangs above the line; uncial E is open; the top of T has a loop to the left; half-uncial letters occur here and there, as if by inadvertence.
