Script Commentary

Script is bold, expert, and somewhat angular uncial of the oldest type, strongly resembling other Cyprian manuscripts (CLA 4.**458 and 464, 6.804) and codex k of the Gospels, referred to above: the bow of A is pointed here and there; the upper bow of B and the bow of R are mere commas; the eye of E is very small and sometimes closed; the first upright of N goes below the line, as in the Livy Epitome (CLA 2.208 and 12.**208); the bow of P is small and often left open; the head of T is tiny; ligatures of NT and UNT at line-end.
