Script is a curious artificial uncial: the form of G is noteworthy; b, d, and some other letters here and there have the minuscule form at line-ends. Corrections in Anglo-Saxon minuscule saec. VIII–IX or IX (fol. 17r–v, etc.). Aldhelm’s poem 'Metrica tirones' etc. in Continental (probably Alemannic) minuscule saec. VIII–IX; the front cover of the manuscript contains two Carolingian ivories of Alemannic type. Numerous Old High German glosses written with red chalk. The manuscript has neither canon tables nor the Eusebian sections in the margins; the Gospels of Mark and John begin with 'Sequentia sancti evangelii secundum . . .' instead of a title.
