|Date||VI in (500 - 533) (501 - 533)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain. The MS was probably written in an important centre like Byzantium, which presumably produced the Laurentian Digests and other legal MSS. This MS furnishes an interesting ancient example of a palimpsest which was allowed to remain intact during the process of rewriting.

Script is a distinct type of uncial found in a number of legal MSS, chief among them being the Laurentian Digests: the bow of uncial A is small, low, and rounded; B rises well above the line and its oval lower bow leans to the left; the upright of R descends below the line, the bow is mostly open below and touches the base-line and the last stroke is a small horizontal; the forms of B and R are characteristic.
