This copy is probably the work of several scribes. The interlinear and marginal spaces have substantial glosses made by contemporary readers and/or teachers. Some scribal errors are corrected. While the script actually appears to be 13th century, the appearance of a posthorn watermark indicates a date after the mid-1350s.
Boethius, a Roman philosopher, wrote this work while in prison at Pavia where he was finally executed without trial, having been accused of conspiring against the Roman ruler, Theodoric.
