Codex Complutensis I

The Codex Complutensis I has been dated to the 9th/10th cc. [1, p96] and to 927 by the date in its colophon [2]. I think it’s being held in Madrid, Spain, but I’m not sure where exactly. Possibly “University Library, no. 31” [1, p96]? Possibly the library is at or related to Universidad Complutense Madrid, which had the name Universitas Complutensis from 1499 to 1836 [3]? Where and when exactly was this codex named Codex Complutensis I? Does it derive from the library?

It appears to me to have surfaced out of obscurity in the early 16th century when it was purchased by Cardinal Ximenes [1, p96].
