Script Commentary

Script an old type of uncial: the upper bows of B and R are small, the loop of E usually open, the first bow of M is roundish. Contemporary corrections by one Caecilius (Vatican page 175), who signs several colophons in a sloping cursive. Many marginalia in rapidly written cursive half-uncial with A and R uncial.
