Script Commentary

Script represents various forms of early minuscule, by five different hands; the script of fol. 93 seems to be identical with that of CLM 6305, foll. 143v–144v ; the script of foll. 138–141v is closely akin to that of CLM 6305, fol. 130; one hand uses Insular and a curious ligature of ro, both seen on CLA plate. Ninth-century corrections.
