Description of the MSS.

B. Codex Augiensis cxxxii, nunc Carolsruhanus[1].

This manuscript formerly belonged to the monastery of Reichenau: it is now in the Hof- und Landesbibliothek in Carlsruhe. It consists of 107 leaves written in an Irish hand of the ninth century[2]. On the margin and between the lines Latin and Irish notes have been added by different hands.

C. Codex Leidensis Lat. 67[3].

This manuscript is preserved in the University Library of Leyden. It consists of 219 leaves, and was written about the middle of the ninth century[4]. Fo. 9a sqq. contain the text of Priscian’s Latin grammar, with some lacunae, written by more than one hand. On the margin and between the lines are a considerable number of Latin glosses and notes and a few Irish glosses in different hands, printed infra p. 231.

D. Fragmentum Ambrosianum[5].

Cod. A 138 of the Ambrosian Library, Milan, contains Haymonis Comm. in Epistolas S. Pauli ad Hebraeos, ad Corinth. 1 et 2. This is preceded by three leaves, of which the first two contain a fragment of the vulgate text of the prophet Ezechiel, the last a fragment of Priscian, Bk. iv auribus excipitur man (Hertz 1. 139, 9)—Bk. v consonantis quidem antecedente (Hertz i. 150, 14). Haymonis Comm. has come undoubtedly from Bobbio. Consequently it may be inferred that the Priscian came from the same place. On the verso of the second leaf an Irish hand has added the contents of Haymon's Commentary, which shews that the two leaves were attached to the commentary from a very ancient date[6]. The nine Irish glosses contained in this fragment are printed infra p. 232.

11. Codex Ambrosianus, F. 60 sup.[7]

The manuscript bears the title “Sententiae sanctorum Doctorum et Patrum.” The five Irish glosses printed infra p. 234 are on fo. 60.
