|Date||VIII ex (785 - 798)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Salzburg. At the end of his work the scribe wrote in uncial: 'EPISC ARN' CONSTITUIT LIBRV ISTV IN SVIS TEMPORIBUS'. Arno became bishop of Salzburg in 785 and archbishop in 798; thus the manuscript is probably to be dated between 785–798.
