Script is a firm roundish minuscule with many ligatures, resembling that of CLM 6279, 6299 (part 1) and particularly 29045(a): v-shaped u occurs especially at line-ends; subscript i is frequent; nt ligature occurs even in mid-word. Script area on final pages forms a triangle, lines of writing progressively diminishing in size. A triangular group of points in the margin often calls attention to a word or passage needing explanation. A number of Germanic names in abbreviated form is entered on the blank final page by a hand saec. X/XI.
