Script Commentary

Script is uncial of a late type: the bow of A is compressed and hangs above the base-line; the lower bow of B protrudes; the first bow of M is often closed; the second upright of N is often comma-shaped; the top of q has a curious serif to the right; the lower-left limb of X extends far below the line; the descenders of F, P, q are unusually long and spike-shaped at the beginning of a word; FF and LL run together.
