Script Uncial
Date V (401 - 500)
Origin and Provenance

Written in a scriptorium with ancient calligraphic traditions; the precise location is uncertain. The MS belongs to the same group as Turin F. IV. 27 and G. VII. 15, with which it closely agrees in size (CLA 4.458, 465), MSS which scholars have considered African. This MS was seen at Bobbio by Mabillon in 1686. Rediscovered by Peyron in the archives of the Ministry of Finance at Turin, whither it had travelled with Bobbio documents. Fol. 113 of A. II. 2* (CLA 4.444) once formed part of this MS.

Script Commentary

Script is uncial of an early type by a not very expert scribe: letters do not stand on the line. Numerous corrections are either in cursive minuscule or Irish majuscule verging on minuscule saec. VIII in. of the kind seen in other Bobbio MSS (cf. CLA 3.361).
