|Date||VI² (551 - 600)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Origin uncertain, possibly Verona. Early connection with Verona is attested by the script of the seventh-century liturgical additions and confirmed by the probationes pennae.
|TM Number||TM 66621|
Script is an easy, informal uncial, unusual in liturgical volumes, suggesting that the copy was designed for private use; and the puzzling symbols in the margin and at the end of prayers—F E SP (fol. 32), P SP FE (fol. 37), P S F E (fol. 56), and P E F SP (fol. 56v), etc.—may be cross-references to the archetype. Contemporary uncial and half-uncial marginal comments of ascetical or doctrinal nature, out of place in a book for public liturgical use, are seen on foll. 46, 56, 86, etc. The lower half of fol. 139 and all of 139v contain a continuation of the liturgical text, in different ink, by a seventh-century hand, using mixed uncial and half-uncial, showing the form of Ᵹ and N used by Ursicinus (see CLA 4.494), and a symbol for 'per' made by p with a pennant-like line through the bow, an abbreviation found in CLA 4.506. On foll. 20, 21, 129 are probationes pennae in North Italian, probably Veronese, cursive saec. VIII; the type of the cursive minuscule on fol. 24v is also seen in Verona XIII (11); and the same page has a Latin entry in Greek letters, by the same hand as made the entry in CLA 4.477, which refers no doubt to Egino, Bishop of Verona (†802). Notae Tironianae occur.
