Script Commentary

Script is a pre-Caroline minuscule of the Alemannic type: both forms of a; the ascender of h can be s-shaped; all but the first, curved stroke of z is placed below the base-line; the nt ligature occurs in mid-word; ri is written in ligature; the cursive ti ligature is used for the hard sound.
