Script is a rather graceful early Caroline minuscule by several hands: both open a and a are used; noteworthy is the form of a with the bow ending in a long oblique; one hand uses a tall unusual form of c with the top thrown back (a form also found in Rheims MS 426, saec. IX in.); uncial ꝺ and N are frequent; the horizontals of z are distinctly curved; ascenders and descenders are often very long; the ligature oꝛ occurs even in mid-word. Probationes pennae saec. IX and X stand on foll. 1 and 189v.
