Script Commentary

Script is a curious minuscule written mostly in one hand; it is important because it is placed and dated: a has two forms; the curve of f and sweeps well to the right; the Insular form of occurs regularly in the Irish homily (foll. 37–38); Y is v-shaped and dotted. Notae Tironianae occur (foll. 4, 46v). The binding seems old.
