Script Commentary

Script, by one hand, is a bold Italianate pre-Caroline minuscule interspersed with uncial 𐌾, R, and S; the same scribe wrote CLM 14080, foll. 34, 111v f. and CLM 14166, foll. 72 ff. (CLA 9.1289b, 1291). The scribe's entry 'XΠ' in the margin of fol. 123 is probably a mental confusion for XP standing for χρήσιμον. The final colophon on fol. 136v reads: 'GRATIA TIBI OMNIPOTENS DEUS SEMPER. FRATRES ORATE PRO ME AD DOMINUM'; and below this the scribe wrote 'SUIOANMIS', probably his cryptic signature which he also overlined as he did Nomina Sacra. A few entries by ninth-century hands.
