Script Commentary

Script, by an expert scribe, is ancient Roman cursive not of the oldest type: e is v-shaped, the hasta rising obliquely from the base of the upright; the tail of G is short, curving down to the left; the horizontal and final stroke of h form an acute angle; the foot of L goes below the line; m is made of two arches; the first stroke of N goes below the line; o is small and compressed, occasionally reduced to a mere dot; s is made of two strokes; u has a tendency to rise above the line, markedly so when joined to the following letter.
