Script is a fair uncial of a late type; the opening words on fol. 159v are in capitals. Minuscule is used by the scribe occasionally to save space at the end of a page (foll. 159v, 160, 188, 189, etc.), and the first Prologue to Daniel is also in minuscule, while the second is in Tours half-uncial; the text of Daniel which follows is in the uncial of the rest of the manuscript, which makes the three scripts contemporary. Foll. 89–98 have the outer halves replaced in Tours minuscule saec. IX in. Notae Tironianae passim. The entry 'ego gislardus' in early Tours minuscule stands on fol. 123; a Gislardus is mentioned in the St Gall 'liber confraternitatum', among the Fratres de Turonis. Another name, 'Rainardus', in capitals saec. IX occurs on fol. 63.
