Script Commentary

Script is by two hands; the first is a heavy, not unpleasing half-uncial of an unusual cast with thick club-shaped ascenders and short verticals (to be compared with Lyon 604, CLA 6.783); the second hand, seen on foll. 115–161v, is similar but not so expert; noteworthy is the squeezed resting almost on the line. Numerous marginal entries in Merovingian cursive and pre-Caroline minuscule mostly of a liturgical character; several contain names: Hilidius (fol. 17v), Gaudulfus diac. (fol. 24v, cf. 33), Siggolenus diaconus (fol. 58), Modenus (fol. 82), Mummolenus lictor (for lector, fol. 87v), Syggobertus (fol. 99), ...ald (fol. 121), Inportunus (fol. 129), Domnolus (ibid.), Faulfus (fol. 137), ...lus (fol. 142v). Notae Tironianae passim.
