|Date||VII¹ (601 - 650)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin probably Italy. The fragment was used to reinforce the binding of a 1554 edition of Dioscorides bound by the Freiburg binder Caspar Reppich. In all probability it is a remnant of the Lorsch manuscript which had been used by Johannes Sichardus for his editio princeps of 1527. Like other Lorsch manuscripts it may bave belonged to Charlemagne's court library; this may explain why another copy is attested in the catalogue of Saint-Riquier of 831, as Saint-Riquier probably had copies made from books of the court library.
|TM Number||TM 68694|
|Contents||Philo Iudaeus, Quaestiones super Genesin et Exodum (235–237, 244–245).|
Script, mostly scriptura continua, is a firm uncial of a later type with shafts slightly bending to the left—this is especially noticeable with the descenders; LL run together. Words are separated by thin strokes probably added by the editor Johannes Sichardus.
