Script Commentary

Script is a firm, bold Caroline minuscule with wedge-shaped finials, to be compared with the script of the Ambrose fragments at Salzburg and with one hand of Salzburg MS a. VII. 2 (CLA 10.1464, 1460): a and d are the rule; the nꞇ ligature occurs even in mid-word; the typical or ligature is seen on fol. 66v. Corrections by several ninth-century Salzburg scribes, one of whom is probably Baldo (e.g. on fol. 42v). The Nota Tironiana 'usque' stands in the margin on fol. 31.
