Script Commentary

Script is a pre-Caroline minuscule by several hands showing great variety, recalling the Chartres manuscript of Oribasius (Paris Lat. 933z + Bern A. 91 (7)): a occurs in three forms: open a, half-uncial a and a; is mostly looped to the left; one hand uses the Insular ligatures mi, and ni. Notae Tironianae occur interlinearly (fol. 91).
