Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat artificial uncial of a late type, with the strokes often failing to join: the second upright of N is distinctly wedge-shaped, the letter occasionally resembling the Insular majuscule form; some ligatures (en, est, et, us) at line-ends show the half-uncial forms.
