|TM Number||TM 67706|
|Contents||Commentarius in Psalmum (Ps 149, fragm.).|
Script is a curious attempt at uncial by a scribe more accustomed to writing an Insular type, in spite of the different alphabet it shows a striking general resemblance to the Anglo-Saxon majuscule of Munich CLM 29051 a (CLA 9.1332): both fragments show the minuscule form of n regularly, R with the final stroke almost horizontal, and often the top-heavy form of S; ascenders are somewhat wedge-shaped and L has a tendency to turn up at the foot; letters generally, with the exception of S, lean to the left.
