Canon tables from the Codex Brixianus

The Codex Brixianus (Brescia, Biblioteca Civica Queriniana, s.n.), designated by f, is a 6th-century Latin Gospel Book which was probably produced in Italy. The manuscript contains 419 folios. The text, written on purple dyed vellum in silver ink, is a version of the old Latin translation which seems to have been a source for the Gothic translation of Ulfilas. At the base of each page is an arcade very similar to that found in the Codex Argenteus.

It has some lacunae (Matt. 8:16-26; Mark 12:5-13:32; 14:53-62; 14:70-16:20).[1][2]

It was named Brixianus after Brescia, place of its housing.
