Contemporary accounts on f. 49v refer to one Jordanus de Walchelina, and to Rotbertus, Liulfus and Leofric. Partially effaced inscription on f. 49v indicates that Stefano Guarnieri (d. 1495) bought the manuscript in Rome in 1465 (see U. Nicolini, "Stefano Guarnieri da Osimo cancielliere a Perugia dal 1466 al 1488," L'umanesimo umbro: atti del XI convegno di studi umbri-Gubiio 22-23 settembre 1974 [Perugia, 1977] pp. 307-23).
