|Date||VI in (501 - 525)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in North Italy. Found by Abbot Amelli in 1872 at the church of Sarezzano near Tortona in Piedmont, where it had been preserved in a wooden box as a relic of a S Rufinus, to whom the writing is ascribed in a document of 1585. After brief sojourns in Florence, Milan, Turin, Monte Cassino, and Rome it returned in 1934 to its former home.
