Script Commentary

Script, now much rubbed and faded, is half-uncial with cursive features: the bow of a is sometimes open, sometimes closed; the main stroke of g is s- or 3-shaped; the shoulder of r slopes down in the manner of minuscule n; the loop of e is usually closed and the tongue extended to form such ligatures as en, er; the crossbar of t is similarly extended for the te ligature; y has the shape of capital upsilon.
