Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is roundish early Caroline minuscule of rather irregular proportions, with some resemblance to the script of Metz 732, fol. 4 (CLA 6.790): open a more often than a; c often rises above the line; d has two forms; the head of g is rather small, here and there the flat-topped ; uncial N even in mid-word; u often suprascript; numerous ligatures including ei, fi (in the Italian form), mi, nt, and rp. There is a tendency to distinguish the hard and soft ti. Notae Tironianae on fol. 114v. Numerous probationes pennae saec. IX and X on foll. 1 and 141v and on the margins of the last pages. Table of contents entered on fol. 2 (saec. XIII in.).
