Script Commentary

Script is in part Alemannic minuscule, seemingly by an aged scribe: the form of x is noteworthy; the at ligature occurs even in mid-word; in part (p. 90 ff.) the script is crude Caroline minuscule. Numerous probationes pennae, saec. IX and X, with repetitions of the ABC-verse 'adnexique' (p. 250). Greek words in Latin characters, saec. X, occur on p. 86. The ten names of God (el, eloim, etc.) are entered, saec. X, on the blank space of p. 192.
