Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is a rather compressed and angular, in part cursive Irish minuscule: e with the lower bow reversed is used by one hand in ligature; g before n resembles an elongated s; i occurs subscript after m and n; numerous ligatures. Lacunae in the exemplar are noted on foll. 11, 15, and 20v (e.g. on fol. 11: 'hic desunt aliqua et forte membrana una deciderat de aliquo exemplario'). A few probationes pennae in crude Insular minuscule ca. saec. VIII ex. (foll. 15v, 16v, 17v).
