Script Commentary

Script is calligraphic broad uncial of late Italian type: the shaft of A begins with a horizontal approach stroke and its bow, formed with a hair-line, is shallow; the tail of G is very thin; the tops of h and L have fine serifs extending left and right; S is mostly top-heavy; upper curves and short horizontals end in split finials; ligatures of AE and UR occur.
