Script Commentary

Script is a broad, widely spaced, calligraphic uncial not of the oldest type: the bow of A is pointed; shafts of B, h, L, and often R begin with a tiny fore-stroke; G has a long tail; M is broad and low; the first upright of N descends below the line; S is mostly top-heavy; elongated T and ligatures of AE, Nꞅ, Uꞅ occur at line-end. To be compared with the contemporary copy of the same work in St Petersburg MS Lat. F. v. I. I.
