Script, by more than one hand, is compressed Anglo-Saxon minuscule with frequent intrusion of majuscule a, N, R, and S; the first stroke of open a often curves backward; tall c used here and there; e with the inverted lower bow occurs; g has various forms; r is short; u is often a suprascript flourish; noteworthy are the ligatures bi (fol. 12) and fi (f transected by an s-like flourish); script often becomes pointed minuscule at the end of a poem or a page. Title added in Caroline minuscule saec. IX or X on fol. 2.
