Date VIII ex (776 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, presumably Central Italy, to judge from the resemblance to Perugia MS 2. Was early used in a centre with Anglo-Saxon traditions, perhaps at Cologne, where it was certainly annotated in the first half of the ninth century. For modern history, see CLA 8.1146; its Darmstadt number was 2038.

Script Commentary

Script is a roundish minuscule resembling that of Perugia MS Bibl. Capit. 2 (CLA 4.408): d is regularly uncial; the cedilla of e sometimes resembles a pendant 6; i-longa is often used both initially and medially for the yod-sound (Iustus, huIus); uncial N is not infrequent; the shoulder of r often extends over following i; ascenders are long and club-shaped; ligatures include fi, nt, and the Insular mi ligature and ni ligature. Corrections and glosses by several hands saec. VIII–IX or IX, some Anglo-Saxon, others betraying Insular influence. A ninth-century glossator with imperfect command of Notae Tironianae made use of a Leiden-type glossary (on foll. 5, 49, 54, etc.) his hand is also seen in MS 83 (see CLA 8.1154).
