|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless at Bobbio. On the second leaf (fol. 43) is the fifteenth-century ex-libris, 'Liber scꞇi columbani de bobio’. Removed probably by Parrhasius (†1522), passed later to Antonio Seripando (†1531), and from him to his brother Girolamo, Cardinal Archbishop of Salerno (†1563), who left his library to the Augustinians of S Giovanni a Carbonara, Naples. Removed to Vienna in 1717 and returned to Naples in 1919.

Script is a finely penned Irish minuscule by many hands, one of which is seen also between folios 1–42: ri, ti, and other i-ligatures are frequent; e with the lower bow reversed occurs in ligature. Modest initials of the Insular type in black with a tendency to enclose the letter or letters following, or to combine in monogram. The opening words of a section are occasionally in Irish majuscule.
