Script Commentary

Most letters begin with a fine horizontal hair-line—a curious feature. The cross of T has the pendant down-strokes. Omissions marked by hd in text and hp before lower insertion; they are supplied in early cursive minuscule on foll. 37, 88, 88v, 101, 106v. Fol. 34v is written entirely in early minuscule.
