Script Commentary

Script is an expert but artificial type of late uncial, closely resembling that of Vatic. Pal. Lat. 493; noteworthy are with a fine serif to the left, L with a curved serif at the left of the base, S with a compressed upper bow, and the high-waisted X. T after N at line-ends occurs suprascript, but not in ligature.
