Origin and Provenance

Origin most likely Italy, to judge by the script. Rewritten, presumably at Bobbio, in the eighth century with the text of Iulius Valerius. Not in the inventory of 1461. Came to Turin presumably in the first half of the seventeenth century, probably at the same time as the MSS of Lactantius and Sedulius and the palimpsest A. II. 2* (CLA 4.438, 447, and 441 ff.). Destroyed by fire in 1904.
