Script Half-Uncial
Date VI² (551 - 600)
Origin and Provenance

Written at the same time and in the same scriptorium as Vatic. Lat. 1322, presumably at Verona. Both contain the late inscription 'de Verona', referring probably to an occasion when the MS was lent out by Verona. The companion MS in the Vatican presumably left Verona for Rome with some of the Maffei family. Two other Verona MSS belong in this group: XXII (20) and LIX (57).

Script Commentary

Script is a pleasant well-formed half-uncial: a is closed; the hasta of f is high; g is uncial; the shoulder of r is angular; the curve of is broad and graceful; often rises above the line; shafts of tall letters are club-shaped. On fol. 301 stands the entry '+ Ego domnessemus scripsi hanc uersicola' and other probationes pennae in eighth-century cursive. The entry on fol. 300v (Is 55.1–2) is in a hand of the time of Pacificus (†846). Notae Tironianae occur.
