|Date||IV–V (301 - 500)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written manifestly in a scriptorium of high calligraphic standards; the precise location is uncertain. The presumption in favour of Africa is based on the theory that Codex k is a pure representative of the African text of the Gospels. It was No. 47 in the Bobbio inventory of 1461. Seen by Mabillon there in 1686. Rediscovered by A. Peyron in 1820 in the archives of the Ministry of Finance at Turin. The Milan leaves were opened out and cut down for use as front and back fly-leaves of a large MS of Cassiodorus in Psalmos saec. X, which was No. 51 in the inventory of 1461.

Script is a very expert, somewhat angular, uncial of the oldest type: B is tall; the tail of G is tiny; the first stroke of uncial M is straight. There is a general similarity to the script of Codex k of the Gospels, Turin G. VII. 15 (CLA 4.465).
