Script, by several hands, is a pre-Caroline minuscule of a distinct type: the characteristic letter is r with its shoulder turned firmly up; open a is the rule; the squashed g used by some hands recalls some French pre-Caroline types; i-longa occurs initially here and there; the ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti; the hand seen on p. 335 and 368 represents an earlier stage of the type, a stage which predominates in Vienna MS 1616.
