Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy, to judge by the script, and not long after the publication of this work in the year 601. A somewhat earlier copy of a work by Gregory is seen in Troyes MS 504 (CLA 6.838). The fragment came to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, from Corbie where it had served as fly-leaf to a manuscript.

Script Commentary

Script is a calligraphic uncial, not of the oldest type; the bow of A is shallow; S is often top-heavy; the ligature UR and half~uncial occur at line-end. To be compared with the Pappenheim fragment of the same work (CLA 9.1348) with which it almost agrees in number of lines, in size of written area, and in manner of marking omitted M.
