Origin and Provenance

Written in South or Central Italy. Was probably at Monte Cassino at least as early as the tenth century when parts (now in the Ottoboni MS) were re-traced and marginalia added in Beneventan. Vallicelli fol. 1 has a title added in Beneventan saec. XI. The Ottoboni MS belonged to John, Duke of Altaemps. The Vallicelli fragments were bound in 1827.

Script Commentary

Script is a rather awkward large uncial of the later period: the bow of A occasionally has the pendant form; B has a protruding second bow; the first stroke of N is a fine hair-line. There is a tendency to begin pages with a large letter regardless of sense. The occasional use of half-uncial in the Vallicelli section (foll. 69v, 70) suggests that the archetype may have been in that script.
