Script is by several hands: the first is the rather gauche and characteristic hand of Winithar, seen also in St Gall MSS 2 (p. 301–568), 11 (in part), 70, 109 (in part), 225, 238, 907, and 1399a. No. 2: he uses open a, two forms of d, g with the oval lower bow, the peculiar form of q open at the top, tall z, and the ligatures fi, ri, tu, and ti (for hard ti); the other scribes write the roundish Alemannic minuscule with the nt-ligature in mid-word and even linking two separate words ('intribu'); two forms of a are used. Pages 21–2 contain the end of the capitula and the beginning of Numeri, being a restoration in ninth-century St Gall minuscule of lost leaves. A number of probationes pennae for initials, saec. VIII–IX, are sketched on p. 2.
