Script Commentary

Script is rapid pre-Caroline minuscule frequently interspersed with Notae Tironianae and slightly recalling the eN-type: the form of a (which is regularly open) and the down-strokes tapering off in a hair-line suggest Insular influence; suprascript u occurs in a cup-shaped form; numerous ligatures.
