Script Commentary

Script is Irish minuscule by at least two hands, one of which uses d with the bow open; numerous ligatures including ci (with the c closed), pi (with i attached to the horn of the per symbol), rio, ti (with the i a continuation of the top of the t). Old Irish glosses are found on the Vatican and Nancy leaves. The fragmentary bifolium Vatic. Lat. 13501, no. 24 of unknown provenance, which also contains computistical matter written by four ninth-century Irish hands, may have once formed part of the same manuscript.
