Written doubtless at Bobbio, probably at the same time as Hieronymus over Lucan (see C.L.A., 3.391). The familiar fifteenth-century ex-libris 'Liber sancti columbani de bobio' is on fol. 38. Obtained probably before 1504 by Parrhasius (†1522), passed later to Antonio Seripando (†1531), and from him to his brother Girolamo, Cardinal Archbishop of Salerno (†1563), who left his library to the Augustinians of S. Giovanni a Carbonara, Naples.
Script is a finely penned Irish minuscule by several hands. At the beginning of sections, two or more letters are often bound in monogram or nestle within the bow of the initial letter.
|Shelfmark||IV. A. 8 (foll. 1-39).|
