Script is a careful early Caroline minuscule by several scribes: both a and open a are used; N is mostly uncial; the foot of r curves to the right; the top of s is longish; ligature Nꞇ is frequent. Notae Tironianae occur on foll. 39v, 41v, 116v, 155, 161. A probatio pennae with Metz type of neumes is seen on fol. 21. A twelfth-century hand added liturgical formulas on foll. 217 and 218v .
