Script Commentary

Script is an early example of the Rhaetian type of minuscule: a is open; has the contracted half-uncial form and stands almost on the line; both R and r occur; has the Rhaetian form in its early stage; there was an attempt to wash off the present script, apparently for the purpose of using the membrane again.
