|Contents||Epistula Secunda Petri (I-II. 13).|
One leaf, partly palimpest, lower script (the upper script contains Sermo in Laudem S. Lucae in minuscule saec. XI), used as the last leaf of a MS. of 93 folios; cut down to 265 X 180 mm.
Written presumably in Ireland. Rewritten at Bobbio saec. XI. The main MS., to which our leaf was added, is composite: foll. 1-60, containing Walafrid Strabo's life of St. Gall, have the familiar Bobbio ex-libris but no number; foll. 61-68, with the Vita S. Antonini, have the same ex-libris and the number 153, as well as the fifteenth-century ex-libris (Congregation of St. Justin) and the number 69. Both these parts may have reached Bobbio from elsewhere, but foll. 69-93, containing Vita S. Nicolai and Sermo in Laudem S. Lucae, are in Bobbio script.
Script is a rapid Irish minuscule: a and q are open at the top. Numerous glosses in Old-Irish; a few in Latin by a somewhat later Irish hand using a stylus.
