Script Commentary

Script is the roundish broad Alemannic type of minuscule, by several scribes: open a is more common than a; the shaft of h is often curved; the nt ligature is used even in mid-word; ti ligature (for hard and soft ti), tu, and tri also occur. Probationes pennae and scribbles: 'ferunt ophyr . . .' and 'adnexique' (p. 1). A ninth-century hand entered omitted prologues (p. 180, 208).
