Script Commentary

Script is natural uncial of later type by a not very expert scnbe: the bow of A has a pouch; the lower bow of B protrudes; the upper end of turns up, horn-like (cf. Selestat, Bibi. Municip. 1 (B), CLA 6.831); the top of T often forms a loop at the left; the second limb of X resembles a reclining C.
