Script is mostly a bold, well-formed uncial not quite of the very oldest type: the bow of A is a thin oval; the upright of R goes below the line and the final stroke is almost horizontal; the half-uncial, seen only on p. 192, 197, and 228, is expert and beautiful and retains such cursive features as the use of i-longa between two vowels and when preceded by r and t, a sign of antiquity, and of various ligatures with e and t; the oblique of N sags; the bow of q is a long horizontal oval; ꞅ is short.
