|Script||Irish Majuscule and Minuscule|
|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|

Written doubtless on the Continent in a scriptorium with Irish connections. The Plimpton leaves came, through J. Martini, from the Ernst Fischer collection, and originally, no doubt, as did the Munich fragments, from St Emmeram's at Regensburg.

Script is a curious debased Insular majuscule by an inexpert scribe: d occasionally has the uncial form with the ascender almost vertical; i is often subscript after m and n, also after u and c; i-longa used initially and medially; the bow of q is mostly open and rises above the stem. See also under Cambridge (formerly Cheltenham) and Munich.
