Script Commentary

The script is a well-formed careful minuscule with cursive elements at line-ends and elsewhere. The letter a is often open; the cross-stroke of t forms a closed bow, the shaft of h bends occasionally to the left; suprascript a occurs in ligature, and the nt ligature is used in mid-word.
