Contents:

  • 1r - 125v
    Lex Romana Visigothorum (Epitome Lugdunensis, from III, 16, 1 to Paul. Sent. III, 8, 28), with glosses by Florus of Lyon (?)
  • 126r - 129v
    Lex Salica Karolina. List of titles and text up to 35, 5. Explicit: … quem alterius canes moverunt aut lassaverunt occiderit et celaverit DCtis din.//
The codex is fragmentary both at the beginning and at the end and mutilated due to trimming of the leaves. In the breviary, the law text and its interpretation are written in different sizes. Within the Lex Salica only the smaller size of the script was used. Handling marks are only visible on fol. 127v, where two marginal notes were added, althought one should take into account that the right margin of the codex was destroyed or is now illegible. E.g. on fol. 129r, line 30, there is a reference whose counterpart is lost. There are only a few corrections by the scribal hand (i.a. fol. 129r interlinear). This is in contrast to the - in parts - intensely glossed Roman law. But also within the breviary there are extensive sections without any glosses or corrections. Probably the Roman law was very selectively edited by Florus. Overall, the Lex Salica part seems more compact and less carefully executed. [Karl Ubl]
