Script Commentary

Script is a broad stately uncial by several hands; the hand beginning on fol. 120 uses an uncial A with a loop prolonged in a downward flourish, and an S with the upper curve ending in a forked finial; tall T is frequent at line-ends; Y extends below the line. Greek words are barbarously treated, and some letters have the half-uncial Latin forms. Eighth-century marginalia in Anglo-Saxon minuscule are seen on foll. 61, 61v, 62; a later Anglo-Saxon reader marked quotations by . . . , in the outer margin of the first few pages.
