Script Uncial
Date V ex (576 - 600)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, Italy and France are possible, the latter being the more probable because of the unusual forms of Nomina Sacra. The names 'DONATO' and 'L. VICTORINO' are seen in the colophon on fol. 78v; 'DONATUM' occurs again on fol. 109. The manuscript was used for rewriting at Freising in the early ninth century. The twelfth-century Freising ex-libris stands on fol. 1. A printed Freising ex-libris is pasted on the front cover.

Script Commentary

Script is a bold uncial still of the older type: the bow of A is pointed; B is often tall; capital E occurs frequently in pages of Numeri and occasionally at line-ends in the rest of the manuscript the scribe was doubtless accustomed to writing Rustic as well.
