Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is pointed Anglo-Saxon minuscule with numerous cursive elements; especially the last lines of chapters and pages are written in rapid cursive full of ligature; often resembles a flat-topped 3; e in ligature has its lower bow reversed; various other ligatures. A number of entries in Caroline minuscule showing Anglo-Saxon influence, saec. VIII–IX, on fol. 42. The entry ‘thiot’ probably saec. IX, occurs twice on fol. 21 (cf. ‘thotker’ in CLA 10.1451. The manuscript has clearly been folded lengthwise, it was probably carried in a pocket before it was bound.
