Script Uncial and Pre-Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII² (751 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably in North Italy, to judge from the almost contemporary minuscule following the uncial on foll. 2v–3v (the blank space on fol. 3v is continued by a life of S Lucia in ordinary minuscule saec. X–XI). The fragment was found by A. Ceruti, Prefect of the Ambrosiana, among miscellaneous charters.

Script Commentary

The uncial script is firm, but of the studied later type; the minuscule is of an interesting pre-Caroline variety with closed and occasionally uncial G; the ligature ri resembles n with the second upright drawn below the line; certain letter-forms (e.g. z) and ligatures are typically North Italian.
