Script Commentary

Script is a distinct type of half-uncial by a well-trained scribe perhaps using a reed, and recalling the script of parts of Cologne 212 (CLA 8.1162): letters lean to the left; the bow of d is ample; 𐌾 is uncial with its tail curving to the right; the oblique of N is thin. A liturgical entry saec. VIII or IX on fol. 2v seems Insular.
