The parchment codex called Littera Florentina is the closest survivor to an official version of the Digest of Roman law promulgated by Justinian I in 530–533. The codex, of 907 leaves, is written in the Byzantine-Ravenna uncials characteristic of Constantinople, but which has recently been recognized in legal and literary texts produced in Alexandria and the Levant as well. E.A. Lowe refers to this script as "b-r uncial". (continued on English Wikipedia)
