Script shows a variety of types: the main part is written in rapid cursive, uncalligraphic pre-Caroline minuscule of a Merovingian type, with a large admixture of Notae Tironianae from fol. 86v on (foll. 90v, 91, and 92 are almost entirely Tironian); sickle-shaped u on the line is seen here and there; the shallow s-shaped ui ligature occurs after q; uncial is seen on foll. 81v–82, half-uncial (with uncial 𐌾 regularly) on foll. 68v–69. Lozenge-shaped O is seen in the heading on fol. 50v. A contemporary hand entered the Greek alphabet with its Latin equivalent and a grammatical Latin alphabet in the lower margins of foll. 77v–78. For the Paris portion see CLA 5.604.
