Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat squarish, early half-uncial in which capital elements are particularly marked: a approaches the uncial form, but occasionally it is cursive; c and e are both somewhat rectangular and near to the Rustic capital forms; G is uncial; H, curiously enough, is capital; L descends below the line and its long foot extends under the following letter, as in cursive; S is capital; N, o, p, and smack of Greek calligraphy.
