Script Uncial
Date VIII (701 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written in Italy and most likely in the North, to judge by the script. The MS was apparently read and punctuated by a Beneventan corrector. Some parts of the miscellany come from Nonantola, and the same presumably is true of the uncial part.

Script Commentary

Script is a bold but rather undisciplined uncial: the bow of uncial A is often raised above the base-line; the second upright of N is markedly comma-shaped; the final stroke of R is low; the top of T is yoke-shaped; LL run together; i-longa occurs initially. A contemporary correction in uncial is seen on fol. 85v.
