Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Bobbio. The MS proper is written in a Caroline minuscule recalling the Verona type. In the upper margin of the first leaf is a fifteenth-century entry: ‘Hic liber sancti columbani est’—not the usual Bobbio ex-libris.

The horizontal stroke over Nomina Sacra has sometimes a cross-bar as in Milan Ambros. B. 159 sup. (CLA 3.309)—a Bobbio product of the eighth century. Titles in fancy capitals, sometimes in red. i-longa regularly used at the beginning of words; LL sometimes run together; M has a characteristic form, with bows occasionally disjointed.
