Script Commentary

Script of the Latin resembles the type of early half-uncial seen in the Fragmentum de Formula Fabiana (CLA 8.1042, and 10.**1042): enlarged A seen at section opening, its bow long and pointed; is almost a Greek delta; m and r are angular, as in other legal manuscripts of this type; the first stroke of N goes below the line; S has the uncial form. Extensive marginalia in smaller letters seen on P. 16976 verso contain some Latin words with R and S in uncial.
