Script is a very careful, regular uncial of the type practiced in the Northumbrian monastery of Jarrow or Wearmouth: the bow of A is a thin shallow loop; R is generally open; horizontal finials and upper curves are fork-shaped. There are two additions to words at line-ends; the first, in Anglo-Saxon minuscule, is manifestly by an Insular scribe, the second in small uncial.
