Script Commentary

Script is a rude, but vigorous pre-Caroline minuscule interspersed with occasional uncial B, , M, N, R, and S (as in Paris Lat. 9451, CLA 5.580); shafts are wedge or club-shaped and often begin with a long horizontal; g is rather long; the shoulder of r curves upwards and extends over the following letter; the ri ligature is oversize; the ti ligature occurs for assibilated ti.
