Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule by two scribes; the main scribe uses a roundish easy hand with a distinct slope to the right: a is more frequent than open a; is far more frequent than d; g is 3-shaped and short; u is often suprascript and cup-shaped; y is short and dotted; the ri ligature is very frequent; the second scribe, whose script looks Italian, uses two forms of a, d, and g; i-longa is used by both hands initially. A contemporary hand added a chrismon here and there in the margin.
