Origin and Provenance

Written apparently in Italy. The MS may have some connection with Verona XIV (12) (CLA 4.485). There seem to be no annotations by Pacificus (†846). On the blank folio 208v occurs the name ENNODIORUM, entered in fine Rustic capital saec. VI. The MS may have belonged to the poet Magnus Felix. Ennodius, Bishop of Pavia (511–21).

Script Commentary

Script is a bold, expert uncial, not quite of the oldest type: the bow of uncial A is low and rounded; the eye of uncial E is mostly open and the hasta above the middle; uncial M and N are broad; the bows of P and q are ample. Greek words are overlined. Marginalia in uncial (foll. 23v, 33v, 34v) and in sloping uncial. A medical recipe in excellent contemporary cursive on fol. 2, originally blank. Rough eighth century cursive in very black ink on foll. 2, 299, a note in Greek cursive on fol. 169.
