|Date||VII med (626 - 675)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in Northumbria, by a scribe trained in the pure Irish tradition. The text is of the Irish family and has striking affinities with Codex E of the Gospels (London, Egerton 609, saec. IX in.), copied from an Insular exemplar.
|TM Number||TM 66247|
|Contents||Testamentum Novum, Evangelia (Mt 14–18, 22–25, 27–28; Mc 1–6, 8–14).|
Script is a late example of Insular majuscule verging on minuscule with a distinct Irish flavour; d, n, r, s have both the uncial and minuscule form; h often has the shaft bending far to the left; both branches of y are curved to the right and the stem turns to the left; z sweeps below the line and the last stroke is an upward curl; uncial A, occurs; a three-arched M standing on its side occurs at line-ends (as in CLA 2.187 and 274, etc.); suprascript u resembles an oblique shallow s.
☛CLA first-edition date (VIII) changed to follow CLA 6, p. X and second edition. ☛McGurk, Gospel books no. 9.
