|Origin and Provenance||
Written by the monk Lupus for Ato, who is probably to be identified with Ato, Abbot (736–60) of San Vincenzo al Volturno near Benevento, though on the ground of text Berger has claimed this MS for France. Corrected, annotated, and used liturgically in the tenth century in the Beneventan area. On fol. 76v is a thirteenth-century inventory of books of St Peter's, Benevento. Richard Bentley (1662–1742) used this MS when it belonged to the famous physician, Richard Mead. Acquired for the British Museum in 1794.
