Script is Anglo-Saxon minuscule: a has three forms, d has two; the final stroke of m is often inflated and goes below the line; here and there the shoulder of r descends very low; the form of z is bizarre and its oblique stroke goes well below the line; m is frequently written sideways at line-end; the te ligature occurs.
