Origin and Provenance

Written in France and probably in the North-east, to judge by script and initials, and in part (foll. 129–158v) by Gaustmarus who ends with two Greek alphabets and the subscription: ΓΑωCΘΗΑΡωC ΦΕΚΗΘ ΗCΘΟ ΓΡΕΚΟ (i.e. 'Gaustmarus fecit isto greco'). The manuscript belonged in the eighteenth century to a Hamburg parson, Barthold Nicolaus Krohn, upon whose death it came into the possession of the Leiden library.

Script Commentary

Script is a small, sometimes even tiny, Caroline minuscule by several hands: most scribes prefer the Caroline a, but open a is not infrequent; tall c occurs; and N are occasionally uncial; y is short and dotted; the ligatures mi and or (mid-word) are seen here and there.
