Script Commentary

Script is a crude minuscule showing Insular influence: a has two forms; g has the Insular form; the first few lines and the insertion on fol. 98 are in the roundish, graceful minuscule used by one of the scribes of the preceding item. Part of foll. 100 and 101v are in contemporary Caroline minuscule over erasure. A tenth-century hand entered hymns on foll. 94 and 101v.
