Script Commentary

Script is a bold, beautiful uncial of the earliest type, recalling the script of the Paris Livy (CLA 5.562): the bow of A is pointed, the eye of E is open and the hasta is high; the tail of G is short. A contemporary corrector writing an easy half-uncial signed after the colophon to Ezechiel : 'c . . el . . . . (partly illegible) lector emendaui' (p. 211/210); the same hand is seen on p. 46 in a correction.
