|Script||Uncial and Half-Uncial|
|Date||VII (601 - 700)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in a Burgundian centre under Insular influence, to judge by the script. Was used at Lyon in the ninth century by Florus Diaconus. Discovered by Jacques Sirmond in the Lyon cathedral library in 1629. Became number 569 in the Jesuit Collège de Clermont at Paris and after the dissolution of the Collège was divided in two. The first part, now in St Petersburg, apparently got to Saint-Germain-des-Prés and was acquired by Peter Dubrowsky probably with his other manuscripts in 1791; it entered the Imperial Library in 1805. The second part was bought by Gerard Meerman in 1763, by Sir Thomas Phillipps in 1824, and by the Berlin Royal Library in 1887.
