Script Commentary

Script is an expert uncial of a distinct type with the curious look of angularity found in the oldest manuscripts of Cyprian: the bow of uncial A is pointed; the eye of uncial E is open and often angular; the first stroke of uncial M is characteristically straight; the bows of P and uncial Q are markedly small.
