|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless on the Continent in a scriptorium with Irish connections. Some of the Munich leaves are known to come from fifteenth-century bindings of volumes from the monastery of St Emmeram at Regensburg, which is doubtless true of all the rest. The Cheltenham leaves were sold by Libri in 1859.

Script is a very curious debased type of Irish majuscule difficult to date; perhaps its nearest likeness may be seen in the lemmata in Oxford Laud Misc. 460 (Gregorius in Iob, in Irish script saec. XI): D (with long and almost vertical top-stroke), R and S are usually uncial, n is regularly minuscule (the curious form of R could be mistaken for n). One Munich leaf is in Insular minuscule and shows Continental influence.
