For a possible link between this Gospel-book and the BnF MS Latin 258, see the notes concerning the latter. Deuffic (PMSB 308, §73) considers the Breton origin of Latin 264 as 'probable', and this view is shared by Bischoff in Kat. §3978. However, pending a more detailed and transparent analysis, this origin can only be seen as possible. It is worth drawing attention to the peculiar shape of the letter g that can be seen on some folios of this MS: the letter in question looks like a mixture between the insular g letter-form and an Arabic number 3 (for some good examples, see e.g. fols 5r-v).
