Script Commentary

Script is early minuscule, by two scribes: a is more frequent than open a, the suprascript form of a occurs often; b with horizontal tag occurs once; both d and are used; mi and ni with subscript i are not infrequent; the nt ligature occurs in mid-word; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. A somewhat later Swiss hand wrote the last six lines of p. 212.
