Script Commentary

Script is broad and very expert uncial of the oldest type, recalling the Puteanus (Paris Lat. 5730) and the Lateranensis of Livy (CLA 1.57). Here and there are marginal entries in contemporary half-uncial (fol. 31v) and cursive quarter-uncial, by very expert hands. The eighth-century added notes on foll. 143v and 186v seem Veronese. Numerous marginalia by Pacificus of Verona.


☛CLA provenance ('doubtless in Italy, in a centre of high calligraphic standards, perhaps in the scriptorium which produced the fifth-century Paris Livy from Avellino near Naples') changed to follow CLA 12 p. VIII.
