|Date||VII (601 - 700)|
|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 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.
