Script is an early minuscule of Italian type, by several scribes: open a is the rule; e is tall and often has a short fore-stroke; ff are barred by a single stroke; flat-topped g occurs here and there; the final stroke of r extends over following t; numerous ligatures, including fi, nc, ri, and st in the North Italian form with the top of the t oblique; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. A slightly more cursive script is used for a few lines on fol. 86v: e in the ligature en is 8-shaped. Uncial occurs in some opening lines. Contemporary corrections by several hands; noteworthy is the almost half-uncial script on fol. 92v . A contemporary entry on fol. 47v reads: 'lege si quando opus fuerit in dedicatione.' Notae Tironianae are seen in the lower margins of some outer pages of quires. Various marginal entries saec. XV.
