Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is closer to Alemannic than to Rhaetian script: oc a is used more often than a; d has two forms; in one hand the shaft of h has a tendency to curve; the top of often curves down at the left, almost touching the base-line; y is short and undotted; ligatures are rather few and include ri and nt in mid-word.
