Script Commentary

Script of foll. 55–70v is an undistinguished minuscule with a number of cursive elements and some suggestion of Insular connection: open a and a are used; r has either the Caroline form, but with the shaft going considerably below the line, or the Insular form; u occurs suprascript and cup-shaped; ligatures include ae, rp, sp, ti (for hard ti), tri, tro; foll. 71–73v are written in a tiny early minuscule with open a more frequent then a: the last letter of a line is often prolonged; the st ligature forms a wide arch; ti ligature is used for hard ti.
