Script Commentary

Script is half-uncial in its final stage, mixed with some uncial elements: uncial A occurs here and there, rarely, G regularly; FF occasionally run together; for the last line or lines of foll. 30, 40, and 51 the script drops into cursive minuscule to be compared with Verona 33 (31) (CLA 4.492): t in ligature has various forms. The source-references in the margins are in small cursive half-uncial by first hand. G in the uncial headings on the first folios regularly has the capital form. The recto of fol. 16 was entirely and the verso partially washed off and rewritten in the early ninth century. Corrections and probationes pennae in ninth and tenth-century minuscule. Old High German glosses occur.
