Script Commentary

Script is rather crude, ungainly uncial of a late type: the second upright of N resembles a longish comma; the bow of q is open and has the form of C. In the 'Benediccio salis ad pecura' entered in somewhat later uncial on the blank verso of fol. 172 the Visigothic-looking abbreviations NSA and NOSA are used for nostra and M is omitted even in mid-line. The alphabetical probatio pennae 'adnixi' in half-uncial saec. VIII stands on fol. 166v; on fol. 170v is an entry in minuscule saec. VIII–IX.
