Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is expert early Caroline minuscule: open a and a; d and , the minuscule predominating; the ascender of h curves to the right in one hand; i-longa occurs here and there initially and medially; i after t often descends below the line; n has two forms; ligatures include et (recalling a Corbie form), fe, fo, NT, ri, te, ti for the hard sound, tu. Small corrections saec. XI. Probationes pennae, etc., including NARDINO (saec. IX), apparently a name, on fol. 131v.
