|Script||Rustic Capital and Uncial|
|Date||VII (601 - 700)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written probably at Bobbio. The usual Bobbio ex-libris and the number 139, its number in the inventory of 1461, are seen on fol. 1. Like the Lactantius in the Archivio di Stato (see CLA 4.438), this MS left Bobbio before 1749, perhaps as early as the seventeenth century. The inscription in Rustic capital on fol. 16: 'Ego Abundantius istum librum contuli feliciter' and its variant on fol. 20v doubtless come from the archetype, as does the Asterius colophon in uncial on fol. 28 (see next item), which is to be compared with the colophon of the Codex Mediceus of Virgil (CLA 3.**296), likewise of Bobbio provenance.

Script: the Rustic capital, which begins on fol. 3 and goes to the middle of fol. 9v, is of a late debased type; the uncial which follows is by a fairly trained hand; a cruder and probably somewhat later hand is seen in the bifolia 1/2 and 27/36. Marginalia in cursive minuscule saec. VII–VIII are seen on several pages (foll. 1, 8, 10, 10v). Numerous corrections by later hands saec. IX and X.
