Written in a Continental centre under Insular influence. Was at Cologne as early as the ninth century: the inscription 'LIBER SCI PETRI' (saec. IX) stands on fol. 1. Two manuscripts of Censorinus, Vatic. Lat. 4929 saec. IX (cf; Barlow in Memoirs of the American Academy in Rome, 15, 1938, with plates) and Vatic. Pal. Lat. 1588 saec. IX (from Lorsch), are supposed to be direct copies of our manuscript. For modern history, see CLA 8.1146; its Darmstadt number was 2191.

Script Commentary

Script is a rather informal, small-size, late uncial, by more than one scribe: LL run together; minuscule letters and ligatures occur here and there at line-ends. Quotations are in crude mixed Rustic and uncial. Corrections and notes saec. VIII–IX in early Caroline minuscule, with many ligatures, or in mixed uncial and minuscule.
