|Script||Uncial and Pre-Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless in a French centre, to judge by the script and the decoration. The Sacramentary is of the Gallican type and its text is closely akin to the Missale Gothicum (Rome, Vatic. Regin. Lat. 317, CLA 1.106)—an unmistakable French MS.

Script is a rather stiff, careful, late uncial with marked contrast between thick and thin strokes: the bow of X is strikingly ornate. The pre-Caroline minuscule used for some portions is distinctly French in character.
