Origin and Provenance

Written apparently in Italy, to judge by the script, and probably in the south. Our strips and those of the Ulpian manuscript, described in the next item, were used to protect the quire folds of the sixth-century Vienna Hilary on papyrus, a South Italian product (see CLA 10.1507 where the later history will be found). Came into the Hofbibliothek in 1799.

Script Commentary

Script is excellent uncial of the oldest type: the bow of A is pointed, sometimes ending in a hair-line; the hasta of E is high; the tail of 𐌾 is rather long; the first stroke of M is almost a straight line; the upper bow of B and those of P and R are small; ligatures of A𐌾, US occur at line-end.
