Written presumably in Italy. Used for rewriting around the year 900 or shortly after, probably in Brittany, as suggested by the upper script and Breton glosses. The actual manuscript belonged to the abbey of Jumièges, near Rouen, in the twelfth century (cf. the ex-libris on fol. 265v).

Script Commentary

Script is well-formed uncial of not quite the oldest type: the eye of E is closed; the bow of q is rather well developed.
