Script is a rather broad, stately, somewhat ornate uncial: the bow of A is often flat and pendant; the tail of G is long and very thin; the second upright of N is spike-shaped; S is often top-heavy; T, often tall near line-end, has a comma-like serif at each end of its top-stroke; small pointed V occurs suprascript; the second oblique of Y goes below the line; LL run together; noteworthy is the scribe's expert use of horizontal serifs, so that he seems to write between two ruled lines. For other details see under Altenburg (CLA 8.1024).
