[between 700 and 750]

Script: Copied by one hand in a splendid large uncial with very few abbreviations. On f. 1v the two final letters of the last word on the top line ("habere") have been supplied in Anglo-Saxon minuscule; on line 6 the two final letters of the last word ("praemisimus") are supplied in smaller uncial script.
The parchment is thin with greasy transparent patches and a hole (before writing) close to its lower edge.
Later the fragment was used as a flyleaf; an early owner wrote alongside the right-hand edge of f. 1v the ownership inscription "Liber iste est fratris Reyneri de Capella. Orate pro eo".
