CLA 335
  • Milan Italy Biblioteca Ambrosiana E. 20 inf. (fly-leaves)
Script Uncial
Date VI–VII (580 - 620)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably in North Italy in the same scriptorum, possibly by the same hand, as Ambros. D. 84 inf. (CLA 3.332). Apparently used as back fly-leaves (now mostly cut away) of a MS which belonged to the monastery at Bobbio; the usual ex-libris with the number 113 is seen at the top of fol. 3; at the foot of the same page stands the other familiar fifteenth-century ex-libris: 'Iste liber Omerliarum est Monachorum congregationis sancte Justine de observantia ordinis sancti Benedicti residentium in Monasterio sancti Columbani. Scriptus sub numero 113'.

Script Commentary

Script is an excellent calligraphic uncial of the sixth century: the bow of uncial A is strikingly thin and blade-like; to save space at the end of lines T and S rise high above their neighbours.
