Note(s): The beginning of the Vatican codex is now lost, but can be reconstructed because Wolfenbüttel, Herzog August Bibliothek, Cod. Guelf. 105 Gud. Lat. and Brussels, Bibliothèque Royale Albert 1er, 10615-729 are based on this manuscript. For further information on the Brussels codex, which dates from the 12th century (Trier or Luttich area), cf. Kaiser 2013 pp. 282 and 285 as well as the comprehensive description in the dissertation by Annastina Kaffarnik (Ed.), Querela magistri Treverensis. Neuedition, Übersetzung und Kommentar. Mit einer Beschreibung der Handschrift Bruxelles, BR 10615-729 (Lateinische Sprache and Literatur des Mittelalters 46), Bern / Berlin / Brüssel etc. 2011, pp. 315-353. The agrimensorian contents are on foll. 36ra-55va. In the codices mixti, which were based on the Vatican codex and the first part of Wolfenbüttel, Herzog August Bibliothek, Cod. Guelf. 36.23 Aug. 2° (Codex Arcerianus A), also CTh 2,26 and PS 5,22,2 are mentioned. These are Florence, Biblioteca Medicea Laurenziana, 29.32 and Erfurt, Wissenschaftliche Allgemeinbibliothek, Ampl. 4° 326. The Florentine codex accrued in West Germany during the 1st third of the 9th century. The Erfurt codex dates from the 11th to 12th century and was written in Germany. On the codices mixti cf. Kaiser 2013 pp. 279-287, 292, 299-301, 304, 307, 311, 314 (n. 251) and Bischoff 1998 p. 259 (Florence). Otto von Heinemann, Die Augusteischen Handschriften. 5. Cod.Guelf. 34.1 Aug. 4º to 117 Aug. 4º. Nachdr. der Ausg. 1903 (Kataloge der Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel. Neue Reihe, Bd. 8), Frankfurt am Main 1966 describes Codex Arcerianus A and a digital image can be accessed via the Herzog August Bibliothek . See Kaiser 2013 pp. 275 (n. 3), 276-279, 281-284, 286 (n. 86), 287, 289, 293-294, 296, 298 (n. 161), 310-314, 315 (n. 252), 316-317, 334 and CLA IX no. 1374b. Codex London, British Library, Add. 47679 also belongs to the codices mixti, but does not contain any legal texts. Cf. Kaiser 2013 pp. 280-281, 307, 310-313.
