Script of the argument on foll. 1–2 is an English uncial vaguely recalling the Northumbrian type: uncial A has a shallow oval bow; the two bows of M are almost closed; S is often top-heavy; the Anglo-Saxon forms of Ᵹ, t, y (with both branches curving to the right), and other letters occur in the uncial text; script of the capitula on fol. 2v is a bold Anglo-Saxon majuscule: d, n, and r have both majuscule and minuscule forms; S is regularly majuscule.
