Script, by several similar hands, is a rather angular pre-Caroline minuscule of a marked type with strong contrast between thick and thin strokes: open a resembles two contiguous c's; g with compressed lower bow is noteworthy, the uncial form occurs; the top of ꞇ turns up to the right and ends in a dot; sickle-shaped u occurs suprascript, as over ꞇr in the tur-ending; y is variously shaped and always dotted; suprascript a in ligature; subscript i after m; nt ligature even in mid-word; ti ligature for both hard and soft ti; ascenders are long. The scribes copied their exemplar page by page, as is evident from the crowding and spreading at the end of pages; many pages begin with a capital (up to fol. 67v), a sign that the exemplar was very old. Notae Tironianae on the first few leaves.
