Script, by several hands, is typical Lorsch minuscule in a state of decline; the club-shaped ascenders are occasionally long and mostly inclined to the left: a has mostly the joined oc form; Insular Ᵹ occurs at the beginning of a sentence; n and N; ligatures are few, but include here and there ti ligature for hard ti, and especially fi and ffu, which may point to an Alemannic exemplar. Corrected in the early ninth century and again in the twelfth, when damage caused by water was repaired.
