Script Commentary

Script, by various hands, is mainly half-uncial: up to fol. 103v of a type recalling the half-uncial in the 'Barbarus Scaligeri' (CLA 5.560) with almost on the line; foll. 106 ff. are in the peculiar half-uncial also seen in St Petersburg MSS F.v.1.5 and F.v.1.6, the latter written for Abbot Leutchar of Corbie about the middle of the eighth century: and R are occasionally, 𐌾 is regularly uncial; y is short and dotted, and both branches curve to the right. A rather well-developed early Caroline minuscule, apparently antedating the Maurdramnus type, is used on foll. 1v–2v: a is the rule. The uncial used for the lemmata occasionally admits half-uncial . A Nota Tironiana is seen in both upper corners of all the rectos. Corrections in Caroline minuscule saec. VIII–IX. The original script on part of foll. 47v and 50 is erased and rewritten saec. VIII–IX by the scribe of the inserted bifolium 48/49 who writes in a half-uncial of Maurdramnus-type; the original script on fol. 103 recto and part of the verso is erased and rewritten saec. VIII–IX by the scribe of foll. 104, etc. (see next item). The name 'Uuerinbraht' is scratched in on fol. 211.
