|Date||VI (501 - 600)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless in Italy, presumably at Verona, to judge by the palaeographical affinity to MSS Vatic. Lat. 1322, Verona 22 (20), 53 (51), and 59 (57) (CLA 1.8; 4.490, 506, 509). Certainly in Gaul by the eighth century and at Corbie by the ninth. At St-Germain-des-Prés since 1638, where it bore the numbers 230 and later 766. The tenth book was apparently separated from the bulk of the manuscript (now at Paris) and was temporarily mislaid in the seventeenth century; it was not used by the Maurists for their edition of Augustine. Acquired by Peter Dubrowsky in 1791 and by the Imperial Library in 1805.

Script is a careful half-uncial of an old type. Many early marginalia in quarter-uncial with ancient abbreviations. One early corrector added 'ex exemplar (sic) contuli', another 'contuli' stands at the end of book 10. Corrections added saec. IX. The verse: 'hunc augustino placuit conscribere librum' (saec. X) is seen in the upper margin of fol. 17. For other details see under Paris.
