|Date||VI–VII (501 - 700)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Italy and probably in Rome as suggested by the palaeography of the manuscript and the manner in which the text is manipulated; obviously it bears the marks of a book revised under the author's immediate supervision. The manuscript comes from the Oratory of Troyes, to which it was bequeathed by François Pithou (†1621) in whose collection it had the press-mark Pithou J. E. 16 (cf. Libri, in Journal des Savants, 1841).

Script is a carefully written uncial, not of the oldest type: the bow of uncial A is contracted and the main stroke has an added lid; the top of ꝺ often resembles the stem of an apple; the tail of G is straight and long: the bows of P and uncial Q are ample; S at line-end often has a scroll-like finial. The names of biblical books cited in the text are entered in the margin in small uncials in lines of diminishing length ending in a flourish. There are numerous alterations, corrections over erasure, and marginal insertions, all by a contemporary hand, which suggest that our manuscript represents the author's revision of a preliminary edition of his work; the corrected version is closer to the text as we have it today. Tenth-century marginal notes on fol. 77v. Notae Tironianae on foll. 109 and 110v.
