Script Commentary

Script is expert uncial of the oldest type, by more than one hand: the bow of uncial A is small and somewhat pointed; the eye of uncial E is open; F and P go hardly below the line; the first stroke of uncial M is almost straight. Another hand wrote the summaries on fol. 10 of the Paris portion.
