Date VII ex (676 - 700)
Origin and Provenance

Written apparently at Verona, to judge by the peculiarities of script. Was certainly there by the ninth century. Has been identified by Giuliari with a book left to the Chapter of Verona by Bishop Bonincontro in 1298, but this is hardly probable and it is not mentioned in the extant copy of his will.

Script Commentary

Script is a half-uncial verging upon minuscule with numerous ligatures, particularly with a, c, e, and t. The more cursive script at the beginning of the MS bears a marked resemblance to the Luxeuil type which the scribe was manifestly imitating, dropping into his normal hand as he proceeded. Contemporary cursive notes; some annotations and marginalia in the hand of Archdeacon Pacificus, who died in 846.
