Script Uncial
Date VI in (501 - 525)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, presumably Italy. The leaves once served as fly-leaves of Verona 85 (80), the Sacramentarium Leonianum (see CLA 4.514): the ninth-century notes in the hand of Pacificus on fol. 1v, 'R in men. VII' and 'Admonitio ieiunii mensis VII Rq in men. VI. In qt XIIII. lnvitatio plebis in ieiunio men decimi Rq in qt XV’, refer to the rubrics actually to be found in the 14th quire of this Sacramentary, as Maffei recognized. The leaves were reassembled by Joannes Jacobus de Dionysiis, Canon of Verona, in 1758. Repaired in the Vatican in 1924.

Script Commentary

Script is an elegant uncial of an old type: the hasta of uncial E is high and the eye closed; the tail of 𐌾 is tiny; F, P, and q go well below the line. The ninth-century notes on fol. 1v are in the hand of Pacificus diaconus of Verona (†846).
