Script Commentary

Script is uncial of a late type: the bow of A hangs above the base-line; the tail of G is thin and straight; initial I often descends below the line; the third stroke of N and most descenders are spike-like; LL often run together; thin vertical finials are added to some letters. The date 719 is fixed by a chronological computation on fol. 115. Numerous marginal notes in a curious minuscule occasionally mixed with cursive and uncial seem almost contemporary. A ninth-century Italian hand wrote fol. 56v ('De electis ante lege uel sub lege').
