Script Commentary

Script is a late uncial manifestly by two different hands, one of which has a tendency to squeeze the letters: ascenders of H and L are noticeably tall, and the foot of L sometimes goes below the line; the left half of M is often closed; the front stroke of N goes below the line, often finishing in a serif or heavy dot, while the second upright is usually comma-shaped; descenders of p and q are long and pointed.
