|Date||VI² (551 - 600)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written probably in North Italy. The ancient text was erased at Bobbio in the eighth century and the leaves re-used for copying Charisius in Irish minuscule. Acquired from Bobbio probably before 1504 by Parrhasius (†1522). For the later history of the MS see preceding item.

|Contents||Testamentum Vetus (Vulgata, 1–2 Par, fragm.).|
Script is a strong, well-formed half-uncial: the eye of uncial E is closed; the lower bow of Ᵹ is rather small; the oblique stroke of N is thin; the shoulder of r does not descend low. The script has a striking resemblance to that of the Fleury palimpsest of Numbers (Paris Lat. 6400 G, foll. 131–145v), with which our MS agrees in size, and in the number of columns and lines.
