Script Commentary

Script is crude minuscule based on cursive, so similar to that of the Rhythmus Longobardicus entered in CLA 3.323b, as to seem by the same hand, certainly a product of the same scriptorium: d has two forms; the shaft of h often bends backwards; i-longa is frequently used initially; y is dotted; ligatures are numerous and include leaf-shaped ep, ri with the last stroke thrusting boldly to the right below the line; ti ligature is used for both the hard and the soft sounds.
