Physical Description

Support

Parchment.

No. of leaves
5. 223 mm x 145 mm
Foliation

The manuscript is provided with a foliation in the upper right-hand corner. f. 4 is foliated 129 by Jón Sigurðsson, presumably because this leaf once was joined together with AM 68 fol, which consists of 128 leaves.

Condition

All the leaves, but especially f. 4, are worn and full of holes. It is evident that the leaves once served as binding; one of the sides of the leaves (1v, 2r, 3v, 4r, 5r) are more worn because it was the page turning out. In some parts the parchment has become so dark or the writing so indistinct, that reading is difficult or impossible. Only the inner half of f. 5 is preserved.

Layout

The manuscript is written in long lines with 32 lines per page. Rubrics in red, majuscules in red and green.

Script
Additions

A couple of hardly legible marginalia occur on f. 4r.

Accompanying Material

The note on the former front cover written by Árni Magnússon is maintained. It writes:“Fragment ur Olafs Sỏgu Helga egregio Codice. feinged fra Halfdane Jons syne ä Reykim i ỏlvese.”

History

Origin

The manuscript is written in Iceland. Kristian Kålund has dated the manuscript to s. XIV, whereas Oscar Albert Johnsen and Jón Helgason has dated the manuscript more precisely to s. XIV 2/4.

Provenance

The only known owner of the manuscript is Halfdan Jónsson.

Acquisition

The only information availible concerning the history of the manuscript is Árni Magnússons note on the old cover. It writes:“Fragment ur Olafs Sỏgu Helga egregio Codice. feinged fra Halfdane Jons syne ä Reykim i ỏlvese”.
