Script is a not very regular Irish majuscule: d and r are regularly minuscule, n mostly so; S is usually majuscule and rather tall and top-heavy; R seems reserved for initials; the second curve of a is sometimes considerably extended; the tail of Ᵹ sweeps boldly to the right; y has the characteristic Irish form with both branches curving to the right; the bows of b and p are often inflated, those of e and o are usually compressed. Probationes pennae in Continental minuscule saec. X on the recto.
