Script is Anglo-Saxon minuscule, and in the main part is of a rather stately type: the characteristic letter is the flat-topped a; both branches of y curve to the right; a more rapid informal hand was used on foll. 47–49, doubtless to save space: e in ligature resembles an inclined figure 8 with upper half open. Some probationes pennae saec. IX on fol. 62v. Marginalia by a twelfth-century hand.
