Script is imitation uncial of a very high craftsmanship, recalling the Nuremberg-New York Gospel fragments (CLA 9.1347): the serifs of C, E, F, and G are often triangular; X is as a rule markedly low-waisted; the bow of h is high and ample. Noteworthy is the scribe's deviation from the ancient Italian custom of projecting the beginning of verses into the margin. For other details see under Munich (CLA 9.1325).
