Script Commentary

The half-uncial is mixed, manifestly in a state of transition: usually G, L, and S have uncial forms, and R is frequently uncial in ligature; but on fol. 95 the normal half-uncial G is used, also the ligature RI; in the ligatures OR and ON the right bow of O has a characteristic prolongation to form the shaft of R and N; IT is formed by prolonging the shaft of T, a Visigothic feature. On fol. 99v a new hand uses the delta-shaped A, two forms of D, half-uncial L and S. Notae Tironianae on fol. 112v .
