Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy, in a centre of high calligraphic tradition. The MS came to the Ambrosiana from Bobbio along with O. 210 sup. (CLA 3.358). The lower margin of page 3, which formed the first fly-leaf of O. 210 sup., contains a fifteenth-century index to that MS. The familiar Bobbio ex-libris with the number 20 stands on fol. 1 of O. 210 sup.

Script Commentary

Script is a beautiful calligraphic uncial of the oldest type: the upper bows of B and R are small; the hasta of uncial E is high; the tail of G is tiny; uncial M and N are broad; P and q hardly go below the line; the top of T is small and sinuous.
