Script Commentary

Script is partly a careful minuscule, partly a careless and late uncial. The minuscule recalls the script of MS Glasgow, Hunter. T.4.13 (CLA 2.156), also a medical MS: a has two forms, a and oc-a; the back of e has a tiny knob; the bow of g is top-heavy; has two forms, the Beneventan and Visigothic form being very frequent. In the uncial the bow of uncial A is often horizontal; the right bow of uncial M is compressed; the top of T is a horizontal flourish.
