Script Commentary

Script by several scribes is a well-formed, firm, roundish minuscule akin to that of CLM 6299, 6308, etc.: a has two forms; uncial occurs; pointed v is found at line-ends; ligatures are numerous; subscript i is frequent; nt occurs in mid-word. Script area on the final page is chalice-shaped with lines progressively diminishing in size except for the last. Corrections in ninth-century Freising minuscule. An eleventh-century grant concerning Freising is entered on fol. 1.
