Script Commentary

Script is a well-formed roundish early Caroline minuscule retaining some cursive elements: open a is more frequent than a; suprascript a combined with the next letter occurs; capital H with a gable-shaped middle-stroke occurs in colophons (fol. 42v)—a Corbie feature; uncial N is rather frequent; the lower left leg of x has a tag to the right; y occasionally has a dot both above and below the right branch; the ti ligature is frequent. Notae Tironianae 'hic' and 'usque' occur.
