Script Commentary

Script is an angular half-uncial of a distinct type: the tail of 𐌾 turns to the right; the top-strokes of t and z have a tendency to loop at the left; the scribe's run-overs and corrections are in smaller script. The heavy uncial used for headings shows close affinity to the script of Paris MSS Lat. 152 (foll. 1–8) and 17654 (CLA 5.522, 5.670): the bow of A is oval; N has a thick cross-stroke; P is squarish; the bow of R is angular. Entries in eighth-century Merovingian cursive on foll. 77v and 89v. The Notae Tironianae for 'usque hic' on fol. 89.
