Script Commentary

Script is early minuscule of the Alemannic type, by several hands, some round and broad, but the hand on p. 111 ff. is more cramped: open a is more common than a, d than ; the shaft of h occasionally bends to the left; o here and there ends in a fine line above it; z is tall; noteworthy is the ra ligature, with the shoulder of r forming the main stroke of a; other ligatures include at (with suprascript a), nt (used in mid-word), and ti ligature (used for hard and soft ti). The lozenge-shaped O occurs in capitals. Corrections by a ninth-century hand.
