Date: s. xii


A miscellaneous manuscript, s. xii, containing the Viaticus of Constantine of Africa and other medical texts (see, Doane and Grade 2001, pp. 90-92). On fols 67-73, there are around 250 Old English glosses which are included in a Latin-Old English herbal glossary, beginning 'Absinthium .i. Weremod' and finishing 'Zarnabum .i. careu'. The majority of the Old English glosses are also found in Hunter 100 (Ker 1957, p. 424). Stracke suggests that the scribe's language was French, as there are many errors in the transcriptions of the Old English (1974, p. 5).
