Script b-Uncial
Date VII (601 - 700)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, probably France. Rewritten in the eighth century, apparently in Italy, to copy a text of Cassianus (4.**44). Belonged later to Bobbio. The Turin leaves were presumably removed after the suppression of the monastery in 1803. After their discovery by A. Peyron, they disappeared for many years. They came out of hiding again in the R. Accademia delle Scienze and were then transferred to the Biblioteca Nazionale, where they were destroyed by the fire of 1904.
