Script is mostly a curious, debased Insular majuscule by an inexpert scribe: d has two forms: noteworthy is the uncial form with the long and almost vertical ascender; the bow of q is mostly open and rises above the stem; Continental influence is clearly seen in one of the fragments, especially in the use of the pen and in the forms of r and ꞅ.
