Magyar vandorlas.gif

This manuscript with the shelf mark Per(izoni) F 17 consists of two parts. By far the most important is Peroni F 17 1. This codex dates from the first half 10th century and contains the first book of Maccabees and the fourth book of the Epitoma Rei Militaris by Vegetius. It was probably started in the Abbey of Saint Gall and finished at the Abbey of Reichenau. It is famous for its 28 illuminated pages, thought to be early depictions of a historical battle: the incursions of the Magyars in southern Germany.

Peroni F 17 2 is a younger manuscript dating from the second half 15th century. It contains an index and vocabulary on Vegetius's Epitoma Rei Militaris and excerpts from Sextus Julius Frontinus's Strategemata.
