Script Commentary

Script is a pointed Insular, probably Anglo-Saxon, minuscule and has some resemblance to that of the Pompeius text on foll. 1–20 (CLA 10.1451): ligatures are numerous; in ligature resembles an elongated S; r is rather short and often resembles a Caroline form. An entry on fol. 68 is in Caroline minuscule saec. VIII–IX of a type familiar in Murbach. Like the preceding part this manuscript was folded lengthwise. The side margins are rather worn.
