Script Commentary

Script is graceful uncial, closely resembling that seen in the Stonyhurst Gospel, in the capitula of the Codex Amiatinus, and in other members of the group (CLA 2.260, 3.299, etc.): the bow of A is a distinct oval; G has a small, straight, shaded tail. A few scribbles saec. XII are entered on the verso upside down to our text.
