|Date||VIII–IX (701 - 900)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in Spain and probably in the same scriptorium as the Vulgate Codex Toletanus (Madrid, B. N. Tol. 2. I), Madrid, Acad. de la Hist. 81 + London (CLA 11.**195), and Escorial, & I. 14 (CLA 11.1635), all manuscripts of similar large dimensions, of the same format, and with the same systems of pricking and punctuation. The leaf evidently served as a cover for a document, as may be seen from the entry in an Italian hand in the left margin (saec. XVI–XVII). Bequeathed to Columbia University by G. A. Plimpton of New York in 1936.

Script is a moderately compressed minuscule of the older type leaning slightly to the left: d has two forms, the uncial less frequent; i-longa is regularly used initially (even Illius) and for the semi-vocal sound medially (eIus); a forked form of i-longa resembling tall Y occurs once; suprascript t occurs at line-end, its stem being an extension of the second upright of preceding n (cf. l. 62); the soft and hard sounds of ti are not distinguished; the typically Visigothic form of the numeral XL occurs; t occurs in ligature with e and with r.
