|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless at Bobbio, probably at the same time as the Hieronymus over Lucan (see CLA 3.391). The familiar fifteenth-century ex-libris 'Liber scꞇi columbani de bobio' is on fol. 38. Obtained probably before 1504 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.

Script is a finely penned Irish minuscule by several hands: ligatures with i (ci, li, ri, si formed like normal fi) are frequent, also ligatures with subscript a and i; e with the reversed lower bow occurs. Simple Insular initials in black. At the beginning of sections, two or more letters are often bound in monogram or nestle within the bow of the initial letter.
