Script Commentary

Script is an easy rapid uncial: the bow of uncial A ends in a fine hair-line; the hasta of uncial E is high; F, P, and uncial Q have an oblique finial; Y is short and undotted. Interesting annotations and insertions in rapid quarter-uncial employ for pro and q with suprascript stroke for quae. Other additions in uncial and half-uncial. Two entries in poorly formed capitals, saec. VII–VIII, read: 'CUSTANTINE SUM' and 'CUSTANTINA' (Lyon foll. 19, 14).
