  • Hereford United Kingdom Cathedral Library P. II.10 (fly-leaves)
Script Uncial
Date VIII (701 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in England (as script, abbreviations, and initials show), probably in Northumbria, to judge by a certain similarity to the unmistakable Northumbrian MS, London Add. 37777 (CLA 2.177, a sister MS to the Codex Amiatinus). Later history uncertain: the main MS either is a Cathedral book or may have come from Cirencester.

Script Commentary
