Script Uncial
Date VIII med (726 - 775)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Bobbio, to judge by the type of uncial. The Bobbio ex-libris with a cancelled number 23 occurs on fol. 1 and again, without the number, on fol. 32v. The inventory number 96 is written on the outside front cover. Bobbio charters in eighth century cursive were used in the front binding. The cover is unusually old.

Script Commentary

Script is a rather irregular and debased uncial of a late type by various hands, allowing intrusion of half-uncial and even minuscule elements (on fol. 60v the scribe drops into half-uncial for the whole of line seven; minuscule n occurs passim): the bow of A often hangs above the line; the lower bow of B protrudes; i-longa is used frequently at the beginning of a word; the second upright of N usually intersects the middle stroke; the bow of R is mostly low and open; the cross-stroke of T is often looped at the left; the lower left limb of X turns to the right; LL run together. Interlinear notes in cursive on a number of pages (foll. 41v, 48v, etc.).
