|Contents||Isidorus, Etymologiae (4.1–12, 16–22).|
Script is a distinct type of early minuscule: it is characterized by a high uncial E when in ligature and the fairly constant use of uncial N; sickle-shaped suprascript u occurs (fol. 23v); y is mostly short and dotted and both branches curve to the right, which is noteworthy. Among probationes pennae and Tironian signs on fol. 9 occur the names 'Teutonis' (?), 'Fulradus'; on fol. 138: 'Ricber(tus)'. Probationes pennae in elongated charter-script on foll. 1, 63v, 150v, 151; an incantation and a recipe saec. IX–X on fol. 150 recto and verso. Some marginal Notae Tironianae (fol. 125, etc.).
