Script is a debased half-uncial verging on minuscule: b, d, h, l have long shafts with horizontal serifs; i-longa occurs; the shoulder of r often extends over the following letter; uncial A, G, and S are used here and there; the script has more cursive features in parts of the Notitia provinciarum and the Tractatus ordinis paschalis; some numerals also have distinctly cursive forms.
