Script Commentary

Script is a calligraphic, well-formed late uncial of Italian type, to judge by the form of A with the drop-like pouch, resembling an O with stem above, and the N with the spike-like final stroke touching the oblique above the base-line-the view also of the revised volume 2: the tail of G is long and hair-like; suprascript U at line-end is a shallow curve; descenders and some short down strokes tend to end in a hair-line curve to the left. For other details see under London (CLA 2.221).
