|Date||VI–VII (580 - 620)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written apparently in some North Italian centre, probably at Ravenna to judge by script. The tenth-century probationes pennae are in hands found in other Verona MSS: they suggest that these leaves were once fly-leaves. They were put together by Joannes Jacobus de Dionysiis, Canon of Verona, in 1758. Repaired in the Vatican in 1924.

Script is a neat, expert half-uncial of a distinct type, recalling the Ravenna Ambrose (CLA 4.410a–b): a is mostly uncial; the hasta of f is high; g is regularly uncial; the middle stroke of N is thick; ꞅ is tall, forks at the top and usually rests on the line; the upper right branch and lower left of x resemble a leaning c; i-longa is frequent initially, and medially when semivocal, and when preceded by t.
