Date IV–V (380 - 420)
Origin and Provenance

Script Commentary

Script is a bold, curiously angular uncial of the oldest type: the bow of uncial A is very pointed; the eye of uncial E is open; the tail of 𐌾 is short; the first stroke of uncial M is straight; the script bears a distinct resemblance to that of Turin, F. IV. 27 and G. V. 37, both of Bobbio provenance (CLA 4.**458 and 4.464). Early corrections in rude half-uncial.
