|Script||Early Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Southern Germany, apparently in a centre in the Lake Constance region. The manuscript must have reached Freising by the turn of the eighth century, when foll. 200–216 and probably 233–238 as well were added. The usual Freising ex-libris (saec. XII) stands on fol. 1. Bavarian provenance is confirmed by the historical content of the entry on fol. 238v.

Script of the main part is an early Caroline minuscule by several hands, mostly of the broad Alemannic roundish type in vogue in the Lake Constance region: open a prevails; the ligature nt is frequent even in mid-word; the same ligature is used for hard and soft ti; the hand on foll. 205v, 209, 209v of the added portion is identical with the hand seen in CLM 6267, foll. 189, 190, etc. (CLA 9.1257). The cryptic colophon for Deo gratias semper stands on fol. 229. The written space of fol. 64 forms a special design.
