Script Commentary

Script is an ungainly Anglo-Saxon minuscule with some majuscule elements: g mostly resembles a flat-topped 3; the majuscule form of S predominates; both branches of y curve to the right; the script has a general kinship with that seen in other Karlsruhe grammatical fragments enumerated in CLA 8.1124.
