Script mainly by three hands: the first is a rapid Anglo-Saxon minuscule with letters somewhat inclined to the right, down-strokes ending in a hair-line, and the g resembling an elongated shallow 3; the second is more calligraphic but stiff; the third (on foll. 28v and 29) is Anglo-Saxon cursive minuscule with open a the rule and e having the reversed lower bow here and there in ligature; subscript a and i are frequent; other ligatures are st and tio; short horizontals go up to the right.
