Liber Comicus Toletanus Teplensis (also spelled Commicus), designated by t or 56 (in Besaurion system), is the oldest known lectionary from the Iberian Peninsula, dated to somewhere between the 7th and 9th centuries. The Latin text of the New Testament is not of the Vulgate but of the Vetus Latina. "Taken in its context, liber comicus could not possibly mean a comic book ... this term is sometimes used to denote a lectionary." It has some affinity with Codex Boernerianus.
