|Date||VIII² (751 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably at Bobbio, to judge by the similarity of the script with Irish manuscripts from Bobbio now in Naples, Turin, and Vienna (CLA 3.394, 4.452, 10.1492). Later history unknown. Acquired by the art historian Nino Basile, who presented it to the Archivio di Stato di Palermo.

Script is a rapid, uncalligraphic Irish minuscule, apparently by the hand which wrote the Bern fragment Cod. 756 no. 76 (incorrectly described in CLA 7.869 as Anglo-Saxon), and shows considerable resemblance to the manuscript of Theodorus Mopsuestenus in Turin (CLA 4.452); cf. also Naples Lat. 2, foll. 42*–75 (CLA 3.394, facs. b) and Vienna Lat. 954, foll. 1–11v (CLA 10.1492): Ᵹ has the form of a flat-topped numeral 3; i-longa occurs initially; suprascript u in the form of a flourish forms ligatures with m and s; other ligatures include ad, ma, ri, si, ti, tr. Marginalia by a Caroline hand saec. IX–X, with occasional use of the Nota Tironiana for 'hic'.
