Comments Written in Ireland, probably at Bangor or possible in Leinster, by the scribe Diarmait. The fifteenth-century Bobbio ex-libris and the number 89 stand on fol. 2. Reached the Ambrosiana in 1606. The large number of marginal and interlinear glosses in the vernacular are of primary importance for the study of Old-Irish.

The colophon at the end of the volume (fol. 146v) is in black in the script of the text: 'Finit amen + diarmait + scripsit orate pro illo peccatore'. Numerous initials, boldly drawn in black, are typically Irish and often occur in interlaced groups of two or three. Membranes prepared in the Irish manner, thick and greasy. Ink very black. Script is a firm and well developed Irish minuscule recalling Turin F. IV. i and to some extent the Cambridge St. Paul (C.L.A., 2.133).
