Foll. 89 (the entire MS. contains 92 folios; the original MS. of the Gospels ends on fol. 89; for the palimpsest folios 90-91 in half-uncial over Ulfilas in Gothic uncial saec. VI, now kept separately, see C.L.A., 3.351; fol. 92 contains three Bobbio charters of the year 1210); 232 X 174 mm.
Written by Irish scribes, probably at Bobbio. Used liturgically over a long period: two rubrics were inserted in fourteenth-fifteenth-century Gothic minuscule (foll. 82-83), and the same hand touched up, with red, capitals in the lesson from John read in Holy Week. The fifteenth-century Bobbio ex-libris with the No. 6 stands on fol. 1 and (without the number) on fol. 2. It was No. 6 in the inventory of 1461. The MS. is remarkable for its text.
Script is an Irish majuscule by more than one hand. Marginal entries in various Irish hands (fol. 15, etc.).
