Script Half-Uncial
Date V–VI (480 - 520)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably at Ravenna. In the upper margin of fol. 48 the name 'apolenaris' can be read: it is in seventh-century cursive, entered with a stylus, and refers, no doubt, to St Apollinaris of Ravenna. The MS is at present preserved in the Vatican Library.

Script Commentary

Script is a graceful, expert half-uncial of the older type: the bow of a is closed; g has the uncial form; there is a tendency to use i-longa initially, and medially for the semi-vocal sound; e with cedilla occurs for ae; fi, li, ti tend to be ligatured. Marginalia occur in seventh-century uncial (with omitted m marked by ÷), and here and there in half-uncial.
