Script of the text is uncial of a Northumbrian type: h and M seem to have knobbed finials; LL usually run together; S is distinctly top-heavy. The text was written with disproportionately wide intervals between the lines in order to leave room for glosses; text and glosses can be regarded as contemporary. Script of the glosses is Anglo-Saxon minuscule with r normally short and u often cup-shaped and suprascript; subscript i and o occur; ligature of tio has the o on the top of t, as in the script of the Northumbrian Peregrinus (CLA 9.1283, fig. 2, line 4: excussationis). The Explicit-line has a doxology in a slightly more fanciful minuscule (fol. 38). A corrector saec. XI expanded the unfamiliar abbreviations.
