Script is mainly by two hands, one writing early Caroline minuscule, the other (foll. 67–74, 75–119) a peculiar pre-Caroline minuscule in transition from the Laon a-z type: echoes of that type are ligatures like ard, erp, ge, gen, gu, ter; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. Anglo-Saxon minuscule is seen in a single line on foll. 4v and 5v. Probationes pennae saec. X with women’s names of Old-Saxon origin on foll. 2 and 144v. Pen-and-ink drawings of Titus and St Paul, apparently saec. X, on foll. 119v and 120. A thirteenth-century librarian’s hand is seen on fol. 2.
