Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat inexpert uncial, not of the oldest type: the lower bow of B protrudes; the hasta of uncial E ends in a thickening; the tail of G is thin and straight; the first stroke of N often descends below the line; the upper bow of R is open; X is high-waisted; the stem of Y rests on the line and the crotch rises branch-like above the headline (fol. 10). A slightly later uncial hand supplied an omission on fol. 11v.
