The provenance from Calabria would be confirmed by a certain decoration type “en réserve” visible on ff. 97r, 193r. In the 13th century the manuscript was in South-Eastern Italy. Here has been added the text written in "Beneventana" of the ff. 192r-v, 215v. After the death of Antonio di Tommaso Corbinelli (1424) his manuscripts were first inherited by his friend Jacopo Niccolò de’ Corbizzi and then passed to the Badia Fiorentina. Here the Corbinelli’s manuscripts were marked with the initials "A.C.". Between 1808 and 1809 the Library of the Badia Fiorentina was confiscated and all the manuscripts passed to the Laurenziana.  cf. Baldi, Sulla storia, 370–372Owner: Antonio di Tommaso Corbinelli ( ca. 1370–1425)  Florentine humanist. Cf.
