Script is a rather clumsy and not very regular early Caroline minuscule by one of the scribes of Munich, Universitatsbibl. MS 4° 3 (CLA 9.1345): a has only one form; the bows of d and g are closed with a horizontal stroke; Insular Ᵹ (in ligature and in the abbreviation Ᵹg. for Gregorius) and uncial G also occur; y with the right branch short and almost lying on the line resembles an Insular form; capital Q at beginning of sentences has a forked tail; the manuscript seems to have been copied from an Insular exemplar. Contemporary German glosses are written by a hand of similar type. Liturgical lections entered on fol. 145v are in part by an early ninth-century hand to be seen also on fol. 107 of the Sacramentary treated in the preceding item; the two manuscripts were presumably bound together already then; other lections are scratched in with a stylus on foll. 145v–146.
