Script is a roundish minuscule of Germanic type; at least three scribes are distinguishable, though one of them has claimed credit for the whole: a and d have two forms; uncial G, R, S by one hand here and there; cursive in the word 'amen' occurs on fol. 52v. The Greek numbering of chapters (foll. 6v ff., 80v ff., 135v ff.) and certain liturgical notes in the text and margin (in green or black) are probably taken over from the exemplar. Some neumes were added in the tenth century in the margins of foll. 7v and 114.
