  • Milan Italy Biblioteca Ambrosiana M. 12 Sup. [palimpsest old]
Script Uncial
Date VII–VIII (680 - 720)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain. The upper script of the ninth century, largely in Tironian, is bound up with a Calendar (pp. 25–46) which from the entries and obits seems to come from Herford in Westphalia. The MS was acquired by the first Prefect of the Ambrosiana, Antonio Olgiati, possibly during his literary tour ca. 1606, when he also acquired the palimpsest Ambros. O. 136 sup. (see CLA 3.357), with which our MS has some points of similarity.
