Script, by several hands, is a late pre-Caroline minuscule of the Alemannic type: both open a and a are used; ligatures, rather frequent in some hands, include nꞇ even in mid-word word and ti ligature for soft ti; the Insular ligature hi occurs on fol. 23. The Greek π for P on fol. 23 is doubtless taken from an Insular exemplar. A copy of a letter to Alcuin in minuscule saec. IX stands on foll. 46v–47v.
