Script Commentary

Script is a rather stately and well-rounded half-uncial with strong contrast between the thick downstrokes and the fine horizontal or upstrokes (especially marked in f and ): the hasta of f rests almost on the line; the tail of forms an open oval; r is broad and the shoulder dips well below the headline; the stem of y goes below the line; the last stroke of z ends in a finial sweeping down to the left.

Notes
