Origin and Provenance

Written probably in Italy. It was most likely at Fleury that the manuscript was dismembered, ca. saec. VII–VIII and used partly for bindings, partly for copying Hieronymus in Isaiam, which was again dismembered for binding purposes. The Vatican leaves belonged to Pierre Daniel (1530–1603); the Berlin leaf, formerly kept with the Orléans fragments, was bought by Heine in 1847 from a dealer in Toledo and presented to the Berlin Royal Library.

Script Commentary

Script is excellent Rustic capital not of the very oldest type: F rises above the line; G has the uncial form; the second upright of H is like an elongated C; U is almost uncial. For the non-palimpsest part see CLA 1.** (p. 34).
