Script, by more than one scribe, is pre-Caroline minuscule of the so-called Corbie a-b type fully described in CLA 5.554 (see also CLA 6, p. xxv f., where a list of manuscripts in this type is given). Theological excerpts in ordinary ninth-century minuscule were entered on foll. 304v–305, a schoolgirl's letter to 'domina magistra Felhin' ca. saec. IX–X on fol. 305v, and a 'Benedictio cerei' saec. X on foll. 83v–84. A thirteenth-century hand added a table of contents on fol. 1.
