Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule of a stiff Burgundian type: open a is used more often than a; the form of g is striking; the top of mostly loops to the left; ascenders and descenders are long; numerous ligatures include ar, aꞇ, and other combinations; ti ligature is used for hard ti. The scribe Wandalgarius signs himself and gives his date on the last page (342) where he adds the recognition sign in the manner of notaries (see also p. 234).
