Script, by several hands, is in the main typically Rhaetian minuscule: a and d have two forms; the shaft of h often bends to the left; the top of ꞇ loops to the left as in Beneventan; z is remarkable for its bizarre form; the ligature nt occurs in mid-word: ti ligature is used for soft ti. A ninth-century entry '. . . acu . . . . . . at aeclesiae sancti landeb(erti)' on fol. 1 is now partly illegible. Neumes or letters indicating musical notes were added saec. XI over some passages on fol. 211r–v.
