Script, by various hands, illustrates the tentative stage of early minuscule: a and d have two forms; g in the pre-Caroline part is noteworthy; the same hand, seen on foll. 19, 19v, 56, and 78, uses a form of r with the shoulder extending over the next letter and a z with the oblique middle-stroke transected; the triangular form of A with the base on the line occurs here and there as a capital—it is found in several Autun and Lyon manuscripts and seems a feature of early Burgundian minuscule. A tenth-century entry on fol. 60 reads 'Rodmundus'; the entry on fol. 114 in littera filiformis seems to repeat the same name followed by 'abba'. Neumes occur on several pages (foll. 23, etc.).
