Script Commentary

Script is roundish pre-Caroline minuscule of the Alemannic type: a is more frequent than open a; the top of curves down to the left and is often looped; the ligature of nt occurs in mid-line. Uncial is used for the first two pages of Lib. 13: the oblique of N projects beyond the second upright.
