Script Commentary

Script is a graceful, fluent, and rapid half-uncial, apparently by more than one scribe: a is wide open; c is tall and leans to the right; is rather big; i-longa is used initially and often in mid-word after a preceding , r, and without lifting the pen; the cross stroke of N sags and touches the second upright in its middle; the bow of q is either longish and shallow, or open; final slopes at line-end; u is occasionally cup-shaped and suprascript; letters often do not stand on the line but appear transected by it. Greek words are written in the script of the text: 'sfodra' (p. 132).
