Written probably at Bobbio: in the form of y, the type of initial, and the predominanly Spanish character of the text speak for North Italy rather than Ireland. Once bound up with the Bobbio MS. of Ambros. D. 268 inf. (see C.L.A., 3.334), written by an Irish hand using the same type of y and the same curious elongated z-shaped sign in punctuation. Was No. 58 in the Bobbio inventory of 1461: this number with the familiar fifteenth-century Bobbio ex-libris stands in the upper margin of fol. 2.
The Incipits on foll. 1v and 8 are preceded by the formula invoking the Trinity, affected by Irish scribes (cf. C.L.A., 2.276). Script is a vigorous but undisciplined Irish majuscule verging on minuscule (especially from the bottom of fol. 14v to the top of fol. 17) with some resemblance to the script of the Gospel MS. 1. 61 sup. (C.L.A., 3.350). The final lines of some pages are in a more compressed type of script - an Irish practice.
