Script is mainly elongated Anglo-Saxon minuscule by several hands, with r and s going well below the line; roundish, pre-Caroline minuscule occurs in several passages (foll. 6v, 21, 75, etc.): g has the Insular form; uncial N is frequent; ti ligature occurs for soft ti; the hand seen on fol. 6v bears striking resemblance to that of Meginfrit, the scribe of Bamberg Class. 3 (11), formerly M. V. 12 (CLA 8.1027a). Lists of German names are added by a ninth-century hand on foll. Av and 153v.
☛B. Bischoff, Katalog 2 no. 2768, dates the text to the early ninth century.
