Script of the main part, by several scribes, is the broad roundish minuscule of the Alemannic type: two forms of a are used, the open prevailing; z is strikingly tall; the nt-ligature occurs often in mid-word; an Anglo-Saxon scribe showing the effect of long residence on the Continent wrote side by side with his Alemannic confrères, starting in the middle of a sentence (see p. 244–305, 345–396). Corrections by contemporary and later hands; probationes pennae saec. VIII–IX occur on p. 3–7, 397–9, originally left blank. An Old High German gloss 'stalo' over 'armariolum' on p. 279. Neumes, saec. XI, on p. 3, 399.
