Script Commentary

Script, by two hands, is a rather gauche Anglo-Saxon majuscule verging on minuscule: a has both majuscule and minuscule forms, n and r are regularly minuscule, S is mostly majuscule; noteworthy is the curious form of g with the extended flat top. The script bears a general resemblance to that of the grammatical fragments in CLA 8.1124, 1127, and 1129.
