Script Commentary

Script is a graceful, round early Caroline minuscule by an expert scribe; it is akin to hands seen in CLM 14082 (CLA 9.1290): noteworthy is the x which invariably has a knob on the left down-stroke, also seen here and there in CLM 14082; a and d have two forms; y is dotted and its right branch sweeps s-like below the line. Numerous Old High German glosses are entered with a stilus.
