|Script||Pre-Caroline and Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII ex (776 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written, it would seem, in the Netherlands, to judge by the resemblance to Paris Lat. 12598 (CLA 5.644a) and as script and abbreviation marks suggest, and copied apparently from an Insular exemplar to judge by certain abbreviation symbols. Belonged to de Thou: 'Iac. Aug. Thuani’ (fol. 1), who probably obtained it from the Jesuit library at Paris. Was No. 2065 in the Colbert collection and No. 3990.3.3 in the Royal collection (see fol. 1).

Script in the first part, by several somewhat similar hands, is of a peculiar pre-Caroline type recalling Paris Lat. 12598 (CLA 5.644a), with open a the rule and a the exception; f has the half-uncial form; the shaft of h often leans to the left; uncial N occurs passim; ꞇ has a loop to the left of the stem; sickle-shaped u and the nt ligature occur even in mid-word; y is dotted; z occasionally goes below the line; in the Caroline hand, which seems a later stage, a is the rule, open a the exception; both ꝺ and d are used; the ligature nt occurs in mid-word.
