|Date||VI¹ (501 - 550)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in North Italy: the MS shares with the Codex Argenteus of Ulfilas now at Upsala and the Codex Rehdigeranus from Aquileia now at Breslau the peculiarity of having the Eusebian canons in arches at the foot of each page. Belonged to the monastery of S Giulia, Brescia. Two fly-leaves at the beginning and two at the end come from a thirteenth century treatise on canon law. The MS is exhibited in the Museo d'Arte Cristiana, and has to be brought to the Library to be consulted.
