Script Commentary

Script is a well formed, bold Caroline minuscule, probably by the same hand as Vienna Lat. 1007 (CLA 10.1497) and similar also to the script of Salzburg a. VII. 2. (CLA 10.1460): a has three forms, d two; both N and n are used; some descenders have a serif; the oe ligature occurs even in mid-word.
