Place of Origin: Written in France, probably in the Loire region
Date of Origin: saec. VIII-IX
Script is pre-Carolingian minuscule of French type: a formed like contiguous oc is the rule, Caroline a is the exception; d has two forms, a number of ligatures are used, among them ct and the analogous at, ri and st.
Chapter-heading in red uncial now very pale.
Ink dark brown.
