Script is a narrow rapid uncial leaning to the left and closely resembling the script of MS Vatic. Lat. 5766 (Cassianus on top of various legal palimpsests): the bow of A is small and hangs above the line; G and Ᵹ; i-longa occurs for the yod-sound (eIus); the oblique of N is usually thinner than the uprights; the top of T forms a loop at the left; v-shaped U is frequently suprascript at and near line-end; ligatures occur (e.g. OR, UR). Small Rustic capitals are used for dates, sloping half-uncial for the phrase 'interpretatione non indiget' following the text of the respective law.
