Script Commentary

Script is a firm, rather uncomely minuscule: a has the form of two contiguous c's; uncial , G, and R occur; the back of e has a small protuberance; r goes well below the line; t has two forms; y goes below the line and is undotted; ascenders and descenders are strikingly long. A contemporary Caroline hand wrote ten lines on fol. 127v.
