Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (701 - 900)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Weissenburg, to judge from the script and provenance. Later dismembered for binding purposes. The Leiden fragment came into the possession of Isaac Vossius, perhaps together with the copy of the Chronicon Palatinum with which it is bound (see preceding item). The Hanover leaf has only recently been found.

Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule of a roundish type found in some manuscripts from Weissenburg (cf. CLA 9.1384, 1393, etc.): open a is more frequent than a; N occurs in mid-word; the top of often loops down to the left; y is short and dotted; some descenders are very long. For other details see under Berlin.
