|Script||Corbie a-b Script|
|Date||VIII² (751 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless at Corbie, where the manuscript must have been at the end of the eighth century. A librarian's hand, saec. IX, which appears in other Corbie books (e.g. Paris Lat. 12190, CLA 5.632) entered the contents on fol. Av. A thirteenth-century librarian wrote on fol. 1: 'liber de antiqua corbeia'. With other Corbie manuscripts it came to St Germain des Prés in the seventeenth century, where it bore the number '724, olim 581'. It came to the Bibliothèque Nationale during the Revolution.

Script is the typical a-b calligraphic minuscule described previously (CLA 5.554). Marginalia containing analyses of the text, probably taken over from the exemplar, are in the same script but with frequent use of uncial A. Corrections and supplied omissions are in Maurdramnus type of minuscule; the title in pink uncial on foll. 65v and 66 closely resembles the rubrics of the Maurdramnus Bible.
