Script Commentary

Script is a rapid semi-cursive minuscule recalling that of Paris, MS N. A. Lat. 1575 and the group of kindred manuscripts from Tours (see CLA 5.682): has the half-uncial form; i-longa occurs initially and medially ('huIus'); the shoulder of r often extends over the following letters; y is dotted; numerous ligatures; p. 1, 8, and 12 are now almost completely illegible. A ninth-century Alemannic hand entered grammatical ‘Quaestiones' on p. 9 and 10, originally left blank.
