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

Written in Italy in a centre of high calligraphic traditions. The scribe has signed the colophon on fol. 327 in tiny Rustic capital: 'Scribit antiquarius Eutalius'. On fol. 480v is the entry in crude eighth-century cursive: 'In none (=nomine) dnī dī nostri ihūm xpī ariperto rege fuit uera iustitia et sincera’, referring doubtless to Aripert the second (701–12); and after an erasure of three lines stands: '† uilius abbas de monastirium scī tohme apostoli cuit uocapolo est pineolo.' There can be no doubt that the place meant is Pignolo near (now within) Verona. The MS was used by Pacificus (†846) whose hand is seen on the added leaf fol. 41, and there are other signs of use in Verona.

Script Commentary

Script is a delicate and graceful uncial of the oldest type written with a fine point: the bow of uncial A is pointed; the hasta of uncial E is high; uncial M and N are very broad; P and q hardly go below the line. Notae Tironianae on foll. 16, 42 by a hand which made corrections in fifth-century uncial. The note written sideways along the outer margin of fol. 280 and the one at the top of fol. 315 are in the same cursive minuscule as the entry on fol. 24v of MS LXXXV (80), CLA 4.514.
