Script Commentary

Script is an unusual cursive minuscule with the Greek words transliterated into Latin: noteworthy is the form of e recalling Greek θ, a form also found in the Escorial Benedictio Cerei in cursive (Códice del Camarin, without number); c is mostly tall and its two strokes often fail to join. The spelling in both languages is very barbarous and corrupt. A cross stands at the opening of the brief vocabulary.
