Connection with Brittany

According to Bischoff (Kat. §4959) these folios were written in Brittany, on account of their script. This view seems plausible, but it may only be confirmed through a detailed palaeographical assessment. Regardless of the manuscript's origin, it is worth mentioning that some scholia on Boethius's De Hebdomadibus, added (perhaps in tenth- or eleventh-century Corbie?) on fol. 116r, contain the following gloss: Ebdo per b 'concipio', per p epdomamada [sic] significat 'tempus'. Similar glosses can be found elsewhere in the context of Boethian scholia (e.g. Paris, BnF, Lat. 12957, fol. 12r); moreover, in some MSS the orthography epdomada (with p instead of b) for the word meaning 'week' has significant Irish and Breton affiliations (cf. Bisagni 2020a: 37–47, esp. n. 110).
