Script Commentary

Script of the main part is a slightly irregular uncial, by more than one hand: the bows of P, g, and R and the lower bow of B are broad; LL run together; tall T and V-shaped U occur frequently at and near line-end to save space; Y has two forms; both **b and B in the list of chapters (foll. 2vā€“4v); some descenders are long; half-uncial is used on foll. 29vā€“30, 38, 49ā€“55, but with the 'Interrogationes' partly in uncial. Corrections in early cursive minuscule and in ninth-century Corbie minuscule.
