Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in the South of France, if one may judge by the features in common with the Toulouse manuscript of canons written at Albi before 666. Came to Paris from the Archives Départementales de Saône-et-Loire (Mâcon). The text is neither Pelagonius nor Vegetius, who give similar prescriptions.

Script Commentary

Script leans distinctly to the left and has some resemblance to the dated seventh-century manuscript, Toulouse 364 (CLA 6.836): F is narrow; LL run together; the first upright of N often extends below the line and the oblique is somewhat sinuous; the upper bay of S is often smaller than the lower; v-shaped U occurs suprascript at line-end; Y is short and dotted; descenders are long and often very pointed; ligature Uꞅ occurs in mid-line.
