Script Commentary

Script is an ungainly uncial of irregular size and shape with letters sometimes wandering from the imaginary baseline: A is usually smaller than other letters; descenders of F and P extend into the line below; the oblique stroke of N is sometimes almost horizontal the bow of R is usually open; the top of T forms a loop at the left, and the shaft terminates in a curve to the right; the second stroke of X extends considerably below the base-line.
