Script is regular stately uncial not of the oldest type, to be compared to the Ancona Gospels mentioned above: the bow of A is attenuated and pointed; the upper bow of B forms a small triangle; the hasta of E is fairly high; the base of L terminates in a tiny triangle; the top of T usually has a thickening only at the left; bows and round letters are ample and full-blown.
