Script Commentary

Script is bold, roundish, regular Caroline minuscule by several hands: uncial and N occur often; z has regularly a point on either side; y is short and dotted. The first line of a new section is usually in half-uncial of Tours type. Liturgical lections are indicated by first hand. Five lines of probationes pennae saec. IX/X in Caroline minuscule and Notae Tironianae with contemporary neumes are added on fol. 164v originally blank. According to Dom Beyssac the neumes suggest Fleury.
