Script Commentary

Script is a minuscule of the round Alemannic type: open a is more frequent than a; z is tall; ligatures with suprascript a are characteristic; the nt ligature occurs often in mid-word; ti ligature is used for soft ti. Probationes pennae (p. 3 and 256) and corrections in ninth-century minuscule. Entries and drawings of a scabrous nature on the front fly-leaf. The manuscript has a Limoges enamel cover.
