Origin, provenance
Wales, Cornwall or Brittany. “Die ungewöhnliche Mischung [mixture of Insular and Carolingian minuscule] scheint in diesem Falle ein Produkt der Berührung keltischer und karolingischer Kultur im westlichen England, in Wales oder Cornwall [...] oder allenfalls in der Bretagne zu sein”, Bernhard Bischoff, Die südostdeutschen Schreibschulen und Bibliotheken in der karolingerzeit: Die bayrischen Diözesen, vol. 1 (1960). Reference is made here to the hybrid script of Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS 572, ff. 26-40, as described by W. M. Lindsay, Early Welsh script (1912): 27.
Hands, scribes
Bischoff distinguishes between at least 8 different, ‘insulesken’ hands (1960). Marginal and interlinear additions made to the texts, which do not extend beyond f. 63r, are usually in the same hand, but some can be attributed to a different, roughly contemporary hand (Wunderle).
Hands indexed:
Hand 6 Bischoff and Wunderle identify Hand 6 as being responsible for writing ff. 63r.11-64r.7, hence including the Proverbia Grecorum on f. 63v. According to Bischoff (1940/1960), this hand is free of Carolingian influence.

Palaeographical information
Script
According to Bischoff, the hands from f. 63r.11 onwards are in an Insular minuscule script, while the first series of hands show a hybrid of Carolingian and Insular minuscule script. Wunderle prefers to speak of “Minuskel mit angelsächsischem Einschlag und karolingischen Elementen von mindestens 8 Handen”. Incl. Insular abbreviations such as that for autem.
