Written in North-east France, probably in the same scriptorium as Vatic. Regin. Lat. 316 + Paris Lat. 7193 and Paris Lat. 10399 + 10400 (CLA 1.105 and 5.594). Belonged to Cl. Dupuy. Later in the Royal Library as No. 5487 (see fol. 1). The Karlsruhe fragment got separated from the main manuscript as early as the sixteenth century.

Script is a careful uncial, apparently by one hand, of the type described under Vatic. Regin. Lat. 316 (CLA 1.105): ꝺ resembles an apple with a stem; the tail of G is like a shallow S; the bows of uncial M rise branch-like above the base-line; the second upright of N leans to the left; the top of S is small; X is high-waisted; thin descenders start at the base-line. A marginal entry in Merovingian cursive, now half cut off by the binder, is seen at the top of fol. 88v. Certain features (for m-stroke, nsroru for nostrorum,ꝓ for per, and 'nicilo') point to a Visigothic exemplar. Notae Tironianae here and there.
