Script Commentary

Script is a roundish and rather broad minuscule of the Alemannic type, by several scribes, some not at all expert: a occurs less often than open a; the nt-ligature is used in mid-word. The scribes manifestly copied syllable by syllable and hesitated between them. The probatio pennae (saec. VIII ex.) at the end of the text on p. 381 reads ‘iosepus sricpsit'. Various scribbles (saec. VIII/IX–X) containing German names are seen on the first and last unnumbered pages and on p. 382.
