Script Commentary

Script is a skilful, nimble half-uncial of the best period, strongly recalling the Sessorian manuscript of Augustine (CLA 4.420a): i-longa is not infrequent and occurs after r, a sign of antiquity; N is regularly majuscule; suprascript u is v-shaped. Corrections in sixth-century sloping cursive by several hands (foll. 35, 47, 66v, etc.). A hand using small pointed Anglo-Saxon minuscule saec. VIII restored the opening lines of many pages damaged by damp. Early Notae Tironianae on foll. 4, 21v, 50v, 64. Anglo-Saxon runes are scratched in on the front and back of the old wrapper.
