|Date||VII¹ (601 - 650)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Spain or South France. Both folios apparently served as fly-leaves, and a Gothic probatio pennae (saec. XIV) seems to associate Frag. 2B with Langres. Formerly belonged to Henri Omont (1857–1940) whose collection was acquired in 1949–50.

Script is uncial, each leaf having been copied by a different scribe. Shared palaeographical features include: G with a relatively short tail; L whose foot terminates in a dot; S with larger second loop; T whose crossbar is either a thin stroke or a slightly thicker stroke commencing with a loop. In Frag. 2A the first stroke of A often has a noticeably downward slant and the bow, usually thin, can be rather pointed; D has a long stem bent upwards. In Frag. 2B the bow of A is usually fuller and exhibits a greater variety of positions, now touching the base-line, now placed above it; the bow of D is rounder and the stem inclines to the left; a faint hairline stroke constitutes the tongue of E. Several sets of more or less contemporary corrections on both leaves.
