Origin and Provenance

Written probably in North Italy, to judge by script and ornamentation. Was used later at St Gall for book-binding. The Vienna volume which contains our bifolium as fly-leaves probably left St Gall in the sixteenth century; it was no. 282 in the Ambras collection, which was incorporated in the Imperial library in 1665.

Script Commentary

Script is a not very expert uncial of a late type; S at line-end sometimes has the elongated, sloping form encountered in sixth-century manuscripts; the first upright of N, the lower left limb of X, and occasionally the tail of 𐌾 have a marked horizontal serif. For other details see under St Gall (CLA 7.985).
