Written probably in France. The manuscript was at Fleury at latest by the ninth century: on fol. 130, between the two columns, is seen the minuscule entry, saec. IX: 'hic est liber Sancti benedicti de floriaco'. Belonged to the library of Claude Dupuy whence it came into the Royal collection where it bore the number 5367.

|Contents||Isidorus, De Natura Rerum (1–46.3).|
Script is a well-formed uncial of a late type: the stem of Y is made by continuing the right branch; fol. 113v has the Capitula in half-uncial with occasional intrusion of uncial B and G; the trick of using capital DE in uncial chapter-headings seems a characteristic of North France (cf. CLA 5.574).
☛Mostert, Fleury, BF1080–1.
