The Gotha Research Library has about 694,000 books, including 11,436 manuscripts, any one of which could be called a "Gotha Codex", and it is not even the only library in Gotha.

Chart. A. 558 is one of those manuscripts, of course: https://archive.thulb.uni-jena.de/ufb/r ... u_00009967

But anyone using the term "gotha codex" to refer to it without additional details is just creating confusion. It's not even the only manuscript fencing manual in Gotha (see: http://wiktenauer.com/wiki/Universit%C3 ... furt/Gotha).
