Script Commentary

Script is an expert, rather slim uncial of the oldest type recalling the Bamberg Livy fragments: the bow of uncial A is pointed; the eye of uncial E is high; G has a tiny tail, almost unnoticeable; bows of B, P, and R are tiny; F, P, uncial Q hardly go below the line. A small marginal note in sloping b-d uncial is seen on fol. 41; other entries in pre-Caroline cursive minuscule saec. VII–VIII on foll. 40, 40v, and upper margin of 41.
