|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in an Anglo-Saxon centre, probably on the Continent. The scribe's name, Erkanfrit, suggests that the centre was in Germany; but it is not excluded that the manuscript was written in Kent, especially as the biblical glosses sprang from the Canterbury school. Belonged to the Würzburg Cathedral Library, where it bore the numbers XXXI and 123 .

Script, by Erkanfrit, is a delicately-penned Anglo-Saxon minuscule recalling the script of Düsseldorf E. 32 (CLA 8.1188); descenders go well below the line. The name 'Erkanfrit' is seen in runes at the end of the text (fol. 71). A monogram, probably 'VERA', on fol. 26v. A liturgical entry in minuscule saec. IX–X with neumes in the upper margin of foll. 44v f.
