Date VI (501 - 600)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy, to judge by the script. Provenance Fleury (see CLA 6.799). Our bifolium at one time apparently served as a fly-leaf: the almost illegible entry 'Paraphe', etc., regularly found in manuscripts from the Jesuit Collège de Clermont, can be made out between the columns of fol. 1. Acquired by Gerard Meerman in 1764.

Script Commentary

Script is a careful, regular uncial, not quite of the oldest type: the bow of A is thin and pointed; the tail of 𐌾 is long and thin; the right arch of M is usually larger than the left; S is top-heavy. Some Notae Tironianae (foll. 1–2v) and slight corrections in the same grey ink (saec. IX?).

Notes
