Script is an expert, small half-uncial or quarter-uncial of a North Italian type recalling the Milan scraps of S Augustine's De Civitate Dei (CLA **325) and the Orléans and Paris leaves of S Augustine referred to below under Paris Lat. 13368: a is now open now closed; c often rises well above the line; the bows of b, d, and p are open; i-longa occurs initially and after r and t, an ancient feature; minuscule n is used as well as majuscule; e, g, and t are often in ligature with the following letter; there are two forms of ti, one going well below the line.
