Script Commentary

Script is a bold uncial of late type, by more than one hand: the bow of A often rises above the line; is mostly open; noteworthy is the form of X in which the lower left branch sweeps to the right; ascenders and descenders are long; the shafts of F, h, and L often have a serif curved to the left. Consecutive C's in numerals have a common upper stroke, as in ancient cursive. Most of the St Gall fragments are much stained by reagent.
