Script Commentary

Script is an early, broad and roundish minuscule of the type familiar in the scriptoria around Lake Constance: open a predominates; z has its horizontals curved and goes below the line; the nt ligature occurs in mid-word, a characteristic feature of this region; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. A cruder hand wrote the Latin on foll. 69 ff. The blank space at the right of the original text on each page was filled in the early ninth century with other glossaries in 2 or 3 columns. The name 'rohfrid' (saec. IX¹) is seen on fol. 100v.
