Script Commentary

Script is a rather bold, not very expert uncial by two or more hands (a distinct hand on foll. 71–131): a horizontal stroke serves for u in final syllables like mus, rus, tur. A marginal note in crude Merovingian and Notae Tironianae on fol. 37v; other Merovingian insertions on foll. 25, 30, 46. A probatio pennae in verse in Merovingian semicursive on fol. 1. The name 'Malbertus', entered by a later hand, is seen in the lower margin of fol. 85.
