Script: Copied by one hand in early Carolingian script. The text on the recto opens with a half inset 5-line black Insular initial D, filled with yellow and its circumference at the inner and at the outer side decorated with red dots. A vertical fold about the middle of the leaf has apparently caused the loss of a narrow section of the text on lines 1-6 and damage to all the subsequent lines; a large stain in the lower half of the leaf has also caused some damage to the text. Collection of Bernard M. Rosenthal, Berkeley CA, MS 201.
Manuscript fragment on parchment of Iustinus, Epitome historiarum Pompei Trogi, 20.1-3.
