Script is sloping early half-uncial with uncial admixture (A, G, S) to be compared with Reinach Papyrus 2219 at the Sorbonne (CLA 5.700) and Colt Papyrus 1 in New York (CLA 11.1652):the bow of A is oval and the oblique second stroke tends to be curved, as in Greek; the tail of G is long; the foot of L goes below the line, extending beneath the following letter; the bows of p and q are compressed; the upright of r goes below the line; the cross-stroke of t has a thickening at both ends; u is cup-shaped. Two contemporary glosses are seen on fragment b: one on the recto in Greek, the other on the verso in Latin.
