Written probably at Bobbio. The external resemblance between this MS. and the Ambrosian MS. of Basilius (C.L.A., 3.312) suggests that they both have a similar origin. The familiar Bobbio ex-libris, without the number, is seen on fol. 2. The MS. was No. 52 in the Bobbio inventory of 1461. For the fragment of Isidore in Insular script which formerly served as fly-leaves to this MS. see C.L.A., 3.329
Script is an expert Irish majuscule (verging on minuscule) of the peculiar type seen in Codex Usserianus I (C.L.A., 2.271) and in the Ambrosian Basilius (C.L.A., 3.312). The initial N on fol. 33 is coloured bright red and green and surrounded by red dots, with a background decorated by by groups of red dots triangularly arranged.
