Script is a curious, regular, somewhat stiff pre-Caroline minuscule showing Insular influence: a either consists of two cs or has the triangular form with thorn-like bow found in Insular majuscule; c often has a forestroke; ꝺ occurs rarely; f is low and its tongue rests on the line; g is flat-topped; the ascender of h occasionally bends to the left; i-longa here and there at the beginning of words; many short vertical strokes begin with a wedge; numerous ligatures including te, tu, ti which is used for assibilated ti, and ri in a form apparently alien to the scribe.
