|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written at Regensburg, to judge by its palaeographical connections. Provenance St Emmeram at Regensburg, as is evidenced by the ex-libris (saec. XI ex) on fol. 72. Our manuscript is apparently copied from an Insular exemplar and certain features must go back to an earlier exemplar in Visigothic.

Script is a pre-Caroline minuscule by two scribes; the bold main hand (also seen in CLM 14080, foll. 34, 111v f. and CLM 14197, CLA 9.1289b, 1292) is uneven and temperamental and indulges in a variety of forms; the general aspect of the script recalls North Italian types: d, r, and s are often uncial; c and e are often high and broken-backed; ligatures are numerous; Greek ⍵ occurs for o, and whole words or sentences are for no good reason transcribed in Greek letters—an Insular trick (on foll. 132, 136v, 172v). The second hand is seen on foll. 75v, 93v, 144v .
