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, the text seems to fall somewhere between the (European) Old Latin and the vulgate, and it has been conjectured that it was the sort of manuscript Jerome made his revision from. However, it has links to the Gothic (it has been conjectured that it was taken from the Latin side of a Gothic-Latin diglot), which make this less likely. It is distinctly more Byzantine and less "Western" than the average Old Latin. It is considered to be an Italian text.

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.
