|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in Italy to judge by the script. In the late eighth century the volume was in the possession of 'Theatbertus (or Theutbertus) episcopus de Dorostat' perhaps to be identified with Bishop Thiaterd of Utrecht (ca. 784), according to an entry on the last page (fol. 193v). Later at Lorsch where it was found by Simon Grynaeus in 1527. First published in 1531 at Basel. Came into the Vienna Palatine Library in 1665 as no. 287 of the Ambras collection.

Script is comely, expert uncial of the oldest type, by more than one hand: the bow of A is pointed; the eye of E is open and the hasta is high; the bow of 𐌾 is ample and the tail varies in form; the first stroke of M is often upright; the bow of P is small; ligatures, as a rule at line-ends only include AE, NS, NT, OR, OS, UNT, UR, US. Traces of the same word, perhaps a corrector's ‘recognovi', occur below the quire-mark on foll. 106v, 138v, 173v (!), 181v, 187v. Latin words in Anglo-Saxon minuscule entered with a dry point are seen in the margins of foll. 20 and 24v.
