N.B.: Karl August Eckhardt includes this codex in his scholarly edition of the Pactus legis Salicae, although it only carries the Childeberti II. decretio. The Childeberti II. decretio is almost exclusively transmitted in the context of Lex Salica manuscripts (especially type D and E). Regarding this issue see the article by Wilhelm Alfred Eckhardt.
