Script is a fairly graceful transition minuscule very much like that of MS Lat. 1564 (CLA 5.529): a has two forms; tall c is frequent; r and s go below the line; y is dotted; ascenders and descenders are long. The ri ligature sometimes looks like an n prolonged below the line.
☛CLA date (VIII–IX) and place (manifestly in North France, probably in the centre that produced Paris Lat. 1564) changed to follow C. Denoël, 'Le fonds des manuscrits latins de Notre-Dame de Paris' Scriptorium 58 (2004) at p. 150.
