Script Commentary

The first line of a new Actio is in red uncial. Script an awkward half-uncial, by a not very expert scribe: the tall shafts are topped by a hair-line; the shafts and curve of S are strongly contrasted; the letter A is uncial and the bow is expanded; G is compressed and hardly goes below the line; the cross-stroke of T tends to form a loop at the left; the bar of N curves. Corrections and insertions in fine North Italian cursive saec. VII. The abbreviation for nostram on Vatic. 5750, p. 13, seems to be in Irish minuscule saec. VIII.
