|Date||VIII¹ (701 - 750)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Northumbria, to judge by palaeographical features; to be compared with the Northumbrian manuscript, Durham B. II. 30 (CLA 2.152), which also contains the same abbreviated text of this work. The fragment came from Werden; the sixteenth-century entry 'MOERS' apparently refers to Moers near Krefeld where the old Benedictine abbey had property.

Script is a not very regular, compressed Anglo-Saxon majuscule verging on minuscule with d ꝺ, n, r, R (rarely), S ꞅ; a has two forms; the uprights of d and h here and there curve to the left at the top; i-longa is frequent initially; the shoulder of r goes very low; ligatures occur, e.g., ei, ha with a subscript. The script changes to minuscule at the end of one column (see verso). The text was rather carelessly written and shows erasures and corrections in small Anglo-Saxon minuscule.
