Contents Glossa in Psalmos
Foliation Foll. 46; ca. 310 X 190 mm. < ca. 267 X 150 mm.> in 40-43 long lines.
Comments Written by Edilberict, son of Berictfrid (fol. 46), probably in the north of England. The tur-symbol points to an English scriptorium, as do the vernacular glosses, but script and decoration point to Ireland. Later in Germany, probably at Lorsch: a pentrial 'Cunibraht' is found on fol. 46v.

Written in rapid and expert fine minuscule. Each psalm begins with an uncoloured initial of strikingly angular Insular type, followed by a group of larger letters often in majuscule. In the text occur vernacular glosses marked by oblique apices.
