Script Commentary

Script, by several scribes, is pre-Caroline minuscule of a type familiar in Burgundy (cf., for example, Autun MSS 4 and 20A, CLA 6.717b and 6.720): open a is more frequent than closed a; d has two forms; e is mostly a little taller than the other small letters and has a knob-like fore-stroke; h with the shaft leaning to the left is frequent; the top of t loops down to the left. Corrections in pre-Caroline minuscule by several contemporary hands. German names 'godun', 'ello', 'thedun', 'athager' were entered saec. VIII–IX on fol. 222. Notae Tironianae 'usque hic' and 'hic' occur passim.
