|Date||VII ex (676 - 700)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written probably in North Italy, to judge by the script and ornamentation. Was used later at St Gall for bookbinding. Some of the fragments now at St Gall were taken from the bindings of St Gall MSS 962 and 963; the Zürich leaves come from the bindings of manuscripts which left St Gall in the war of Toggenburg (1712); the Vienna volume which contains our leaves as fly-leaves formed part of the Ambras collection in which it bore the number 282.
