Script is Anglo-Saxon majuscule of a rather compressed type: d, n, r, s have two forms, n, r, s are more frequent than N, R, ꞅ; the shoulder of r is very low and the letter could easily be mistaken for n; the oblique of z descends boldly below the line; uncial A occurs with the pointed bow prolonged below the line; the scribe drops into minuscule at the ends of lines.
