Origin and Provenance

Script Commentary

Script is a regular, almost majestic half-uncial by more than one scribe: the hasta of F often extends to the left of the shaft; the bow of is generous. Contemporary corrections and marginalia, probably all by Donatus, are in sloping uncial; there are later entries in Beneventan saec. X–XI (p. 68, 423) and in ordinary minuscule, the latter being chiefly concerned with restoring lost portions near the edge. Beneventan neumes are seen on p. 538.
