								On the verso-side of the slip <name key="ArnMag001" type="person">Árni Magnússon</name> has written:
								<q>Lỏgmadren<ex>n</ex> Pall Jónsson ä en<ex>n</ex>nu an<ex>n</ex>ad exemplar, in folio, komed sỏmuleidis fra Vigur.</q>
							<p>The codicological unit was written in <origPlace key="IS">Iceland</origPlace>.
								Kålund dates it to the <origDate notBefore="1651" notAfter="1700">second half of the seventeenth century</origDate> 
								<bibl><ref target="KKKat">Katalog II</ref>,
									<biblScope unit="page">290</biblScope></bibl>.</p>
							<p>According to the AM-slip, <name type="person" role="owner" key="ArnMag001">Árni Magnússon</name> received this codicological unit
								from <name type="person" key="PalJon005">Páll Vídalín</name> who had acquired it from <name type="place">Vigur</name>. 
								The AM-slip seems to have been written as an independent note slip while the codicological unit was still
								in the possession of <name type="person" key="PalJon005">Páll Vídalín</name>. Later, after the acquisition, this slip was
								added to the present codicological unit.
								Based on a slip found in <ref>AM 408 e 4to</ref>,
								it is likely that this is the <title type="uniform">Knýtlinga saga</title> that formed the first part of a larger codex
								from <name type="person" key="PalJon005">Páll Vídalín</name>.
								If that association is correct, the present codicological unit may have a separate origin and
								 was presumably added to the larger manuscript somewhat later.</p>
