Script is typical Luxeuil minuscule of the advanced type with numerous ligatures: a has a horn-like first stroke; o is pinched at the top; y goes somewhat below the line and both branches turn to the left, an Insular trait; ascenders are tall and club-shaped, descenders longish, ending in a hair-line; the peculiar fl ligature comes straight from Merovingian cursive; the ti ligature is used indifferently for the soft and hard sounds.
