Origin and Provenance

Written in North Italy. The liturgical marginalia point to some diocese influenced by Milan, but not to Milan itself; Dom Morin has suggested Aquileia. Later history is unknown. The MS was bought by Cardinal Federico Borromeo ‘ab haeredibus Francisci Cicerei’ in 1605.

Script Commentary

Script is a well-formed regular uncial, but not of the oldest type: the bow of A is curiously triangular. Besides the contemporary Eusebian canons, which are throughout in Greek, there are many liturgical marginalia in interesting cursive saec. VII.
