Script Commentary

Script is a rapid, rather ungainly uncial; the bow of uncial A is often horizontal and above the line; B occasionally is half-uncial; C and G lean backwards; uncial M is squarish, approaching the minuscule form; the left cross-bar of T has a downward finial; ascenders and descenders are characteristically long; ligatures of US, NS, ON, OR, UR occur, even in mid-line.
