The codicological unit was written in Iceland. Since it is in the hand of Jón Erlendsson it was in
all likelihood produced in Villingaholt
in the middle of the
seventeenth century (Kålund 1889-1894, 1: 74).
The larger manuscript, of which this was a part, belonged to Þorbjörg Vigfúsdóttir
Next, her nephew Þórður
owned the manuscript. From him, Árni Magnússon
this part individually. Later on, he received the rest of the larger codex but with a replacement
for the present copy. (AM 113 c fol., AM-slip; Loth 1960, Editiones AM, A5, lxii-lxiii; Jón Helgason 1970, Opuscula IV, 354-355)
- Árni Magnússon received this codicological unit separately.
- Before then the codicological unit was part of Ms67a.
