Script is an early Caroline minuscule by more than one scribe: a has two forms, with open a more frequent; h with its shaft leaning to the left suggests Burgundian influence; the uncial form of N occurs; ligatures include mi (especially in the tabulation), nt (even in mid word). Here and there capital O and Q have a central point, also seen in the Hildebald inscriptions; this may be a Cologne shibboleth. A small correction possibly by an Insular hand on fol. 143. Numerous additions and marginal notes saec. X and XI.
