|Date||VIII in (701 - 725)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in North Italy, probably at Bobbio, over the erased text of the Codex Theodosianus. Apparently not entered in the catalogue of 1461. Reached Turin most likely during the first part of the seventeenth century, together with the Lactantius, Sedulius, and the palimpsest A. II. 2* (CLA 4.438, 447, 441 ff.). Destroyed by fire in 1904.

Script is a North Italian cursive minuscule by several hands, some recalling Naples Lat. 1 and IV. A. 8 (CLA 3.388 and 403): a in ligature often rests on its side; the loop of e is elongated; i-longa is frequent initially; the horizontal of ꞇ forms a closed loop to the left; ss run together, a North Italian feature (cf. CLA 3.353); the ligature ui resembles elongated S. Marginalia and corrections in contemporary Irish minuscule.
