Script Commentary

Script is an expert uncial not of the old type: the lower bow of B protrudes; 𐌾 has a thin tail descending straight; L is tall; M and U are broad; some horizontals and some upper curves have forked finials; the script shows on the whole a marked similarity to the Cambridge Iuvencus (CLA 2.127; cf. CLA 6, p. x), which, however, is more advanced.
