Script is expert Anglo-Saxon minuscule of a compressed type with descenders unusually long: the shoulder of r descends very low and is easily mistaken for the short stroke of another letter; cursive features are seen in the ligature tr and in the looped ascender of d; other ligatures include m, n, tio, and even li in the form of an obtuse angle.
