|Script||Early Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain, presumably Switzerland and possibly the centre that produced St Gall MS 1399 a. 3, with which our manuscript agrees in size and various palaeographical features. Our leaf was used for binding 'I. Pars Hist(oriarum) Pauli Iouii italice' according to the title still visible on the recto. Was probably acquired for Engelberg after 1891 by B. Gottwald, librarian of the monastery, who marked the content, but did not include the fragment in his published catalogue.
