|Script||Early Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in France. Was early united to the manuscript of Gregory's letters described in the previous item, as the composite volume is listed in a twelfth-century Corbie catalogue as ‘Epistolae de registro cum exceptione’. Came to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, in 1638, where it bore the numbers 169 and 858. Acquired by Peter Dubrowsky in 1791 and by the Imperial Library in 1805.
