Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is pre-Caroline minuscule of a French type called a-b from its distinguishing letters (for the list of manuscripts in this type see CLA 6, p. xxv f.; see also 5.554 for a fuller description of the script). Many passages erased and rewritten in Caroline minuscule saec. IX¹ at the same time that many leaves were added. Notae Tironianae occur, e.g. on foll. 130, 185v. An eleventh-century hand entered a catalogue on fol. 254, originally left blank. The names of the Greek letters were added in barbarous Latin on fol. 175v.
