N.B.: Detlef Liebs mistakenly mentions this codex as one of the textual witnesses of the Lex Romana Curiensis. This occured because Meyer-Marthaler gave A 220 as shelfmark in her edition. Today the fragment is preserved in the Archivio Capitolare of San Ambrogio in Milan.

Origin:
1st quarter of the 9th century, Saint Denis (Liebs, Mordek); Flavius Josephus: 1st/2nd quarter of the 9th century, Saint Denis, written for Reichenau (Bischoff)

Provenance:
Reichenau; St Gall; Monastery Engelberg (beginning of the 12th century); donated to Cardinal Federigo Borromeo in 1604
