Script, by several scribes, is a late, rather pointed uncial; the sloping form it occasionally assumes in both text and marginalia (p. 13, 27, 204) illustrates the declining stage of the script: half-uncial a occurs here and there; the second upright of N is often comma-shaped; X often has the lower left branch sweeping below the line and ending in a curve to the right, as in the Edictus Rothari (see CLA 7.949); a curious North Italian cursive minuscule with many ligatures is used on p. 201. Additions by various eighth-century hands in uncial or mixed uncial and minuscule.
