Script Commentary

Apparently when the half-uncial was corrected in 509–10, the bottom of fol. 288r and all of fol. 288v were blank, and the corrector who signed on fol. 288r did not sign the quire-mark on fol. 288v, which is by the original hand and alone lacks the ‘contuli’ underneath. Presumably this was because the full and complete ‘contuli’ with the date occurs on the preceding page. Apparently soon afterwards the blank space remaining in the quire was utilized for the beginning of the uncial ‘Liber 1 ad Constantium’, and further quires, of which three (XXXIX–XLI) survive, were made to conform in size to the original MS, but the parchment is different, showing marginal prickings, and the quire-marks are different though continuous.
