Script Commentary

Script is a neat, small, expert uncial of an old type: the first stroke of M is curved; various ligatures occur at line-end. Contemporary interlinear corrections in smaller uncial; the corrector entered his 'emendaui' in cursive at the end of Libb. 13–14 (cf. p. 93).


☛Formerly Sankt Paul im Lavanttal, Stiftsbibliothek 3, 1 (25.2.36; XXV.a.3) (p. A, 1–79, 88–259) [palimpsest old].
