Script is a distinct type of sloping early half-uncial found in a number of contemporary legal manuscripts, suggesting an important centre, of which the Fragmentum de Formula Fabiana (CLA 8.1042, 10.**1042) is the best known representative: A, G, and S have the uncial form; b, d, m, and r are half-uncial; c, e, and o are compressed; the tail of G is thin; the foot of L swings to the right below the line; the top of m and the shoulder of r are markedly square; the oblique of N is thin; the top of T is ticked upward at the left and downward at the right (cf. the juristic fragment in Oxford, cal 2.248); the lower part of u is square; thick and thin strokes are strongly contrasted. Extensive marginalia in the same type of script, but smaller and more rounded.
