Script Commentary

Script is crude, pre-Caroline minuscule by several hands: a has two forms; one hand uses the Beneventan forms of a and t; another hand uses the top-heavy g found in Paris Nouv. Acq. Lat. 203 (CLA 5.676); i-longa extends below the line; y is short and dotted; the ligature ti occurs for hard ti; noteworthy is the occasional intrusion of uncial B, G, N, R, and S. A few liturgical entries saec. VIII–IX have the Visigothic form of G. A Nota Tironiana on fol. 168v. A list of rents of the church of Autun (saec. XI) is entered on the strip of parchment between foll. 3 and 4.
