Script Commentary

Script is late uncial with B, M, P, and R rather broad; the right stroke of is broken and the upper part resembles the stem of an apple; the second upright of N is more or less comma-shaped; the two strokes of X cross each other high; a straight vertical stroke serves as both the left wing and the descender of Y. Minor corrections ca. saec. IX. Some twelfth century scribbles on both recto and verso.
