Script Commentary

Script is broad and roundish Alemannic minuscule by more than one scribe: the characteristic ligature nt occurs in mid-word; uncial 𐌾 occurs here and there. A few Old High German glosses written with pen or stylus. The familiar verses 'Omnia vincit amor' etc. and 'Ferunt ophyr' etc. occur as probationes pennae on foll. 5, 13, 86, 104, etc. The manuscript shows much use.
