Script Uncial
Date VI² (551 - 600)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy. Bound as a fly-leaf in an eleventh-century Passionarium at latest in the fourteenth century. At that time the main manuscript already belonged to the church of S Alessandro: the ex-libris reads, ‘Iste liber est ecclesie s. Alexandri in columna burgi s. Leonardi civitatis Pergami’. The library of the clergy of S Alessandro is at present deposited in the ‘Biblioteca G. M. Radini Tedeschi’ dei Preti del S Cuore (via Garibaldi, 10).

Script Commentary

Script is well-formed uncial: the bow of A is pointed and rather short. A slightly later hand corrected the Explicit of canon 10. A table of contents of the main manuscript was entered in the fourteenth century; scribbles and ornamental drawings were entered by various hands.
