Script Half-Uncial
Date VI (501 - 600)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably in Spain, to judge by general appearance and the presence of such Spanish symptoms as the use of dh to mark omission, b with a high flourish superscripted s to denote 'bus', a stroke with a dot above to mark omitted m, the characteristic form of letter e seen in the contemporary insertions of omitted passages. Provenance unknown. The earlier press-mark in the Bibliothèque Nationale was 'Suppl. I. 118. B' (see fol. 1).

Script Commentary

Script is a bold, uniform, though not very expert half-uncial: the form of a is almost uncial; the eye of e is closed; f is long and the hasta is thin and runs along the head-line; the oblique stroke of N is fine and curves somewhat at the bottom; r descends well below the line; the stem of is rounded and often unattached to its thin top which mostly bends down at the left; z occasionally goes below the line; uncial G occurs but rarely (foll. 67, 86); e with cedilla occurs. Marginalia, apart from supplied omissions, are by various eighth-century hands: in uncial (fol. 47), in cursive (fol. 36v, 47v), in early minuscule (foll. 25v, 138v); a contemporary corrector added 'emendabi semel deo gratias' under a colophon on fol. 227 and 'do gratias' in the scribe's hand occurs on fol. 191v before the colophon.
