|Date||VII–VIII (680 - 720)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Italy, to judge by the script. Provenance unknown. The Altenburg fragment is reported to have formed the binding of legal records from Nischwitz near Altenburg. The Munich fragment is said to come from Hessia; it was purchased from Ludwig Rosenthal in Munich in 1924. The St Petersburg leaf was acquired by Prof. N. P. Likhachev (†1935) who allegedly bought many fragments in France and Italy.

Script is a rather broad, stately, somewhat ornate uncial: the bow of A is often flat and pendant; the tail of 𐌾 is long and very thin; the second upright of N is spike-like; S is often top-heavy; the top of T has a thick comma-like serif at each end; LL run together; noteworthy is the scribe's expert use of horizontal serifs, so that he seems to write between two ruled lines. For other details see under St Petersburg.
