    Origin:
    1st quarter of the 10th century, Abby St Remigius in Reims (Eckhardt 1962 following Bischoff); 10th/11th century (Bischoff HA)

    Provenance:
    The codex was kept at Remigius Abbey in Reims during the 13th century: Liber Sancti Remigi Remensis vol. VIIXX et II (foll. 1r and 32v). Later it came into possession of the French king. On Nov. 25th 1810 Joseph Barrois purchased the codex for 150 Francs (Barrois nr. 201), and subsequently it came into the collection of Lord Ashburnham in 1849. Since 1885 it has been housed at the Bibliothèque nationale.

    This extremely small-format codex was not completed at the end. The title list stopped on fol. 58r and was briefly continued in the 15th century on fol. 58v, only to terminate again; on fol. 59r-v there are merely numberings without rubrics. In the first title "mannire" has been replaced repeatedly by "bannire". [Karl Ubl]

    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.
