Script Commentary

Script is a natural late uncial of Italian type; the second upright of N is comma-shaped; P and q have long descenders; the ligature of LI, I being subscript, is unusual; FF and LL run together; OR ligature even in mid-word; other ligatures used are LE, RE, and XP; minuscule is used in the liturgical formula on fol. 1v and in the run-over at the foot of fol. 3v, likewise for some contemporary corrections.
