|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in England, probably in Northumbria. This leaf was the last of the Gospel of St Matthew, and both the space originally left blank on the verso and the erased parts of the leaf were used to record documents in Anglo-Saxon saec. X, which connect the fragment with Cambridge. Bound up, no doubt by Sir Robert Cotton, with other Latin and Anglo-Saxon MSS.
