Script is angular, compressed Irish majuscule verging on minuscule or minuscule with many majuscule adhesions, recalling to some extent the script of Karlsruhe Fragm. Aug. 20 (CLA 8.1118): a has two forms; d and ꞅ are mostly minuscule, n regularly so, R regularly majuscule; in the ligatures gi, ri, ti, xi the i resembles a shallow s; other ligatures are fi, tia, tio. Contemporary glosses in small Irish minuscule.
