Script is an artificial half-uncial of a type approaching minuscule in vogue at Corbie: a resembles joined oc; g is top-heavy and recalls the form common in the a-b type; the shoulder of r is small; the horizontal of ꞇ forms a loop; ascenders and descenders are rather long; the script has a marked resemblance to that of the Paris Oribasius (CLA 5.688).
