Script Commentary

Script is a rather gauche half-uncial of a singular type: e is open; f has a long descender; the oblique of N is thin and high; r approaches the minuscule form; stands on the line and its short thick stem contrasts with the thin awkward up-stroke; the bottom-stroke of z is curved.
