Script Commentary

Script is late uncial of the curious longish type seen in Orléans 154 (131) + Paris Nouv. Acq. Lat. 1598 + 1599 (CLA 6.802): the bow of A is low and small; LL run together; the top of T is ticked at the left end; U is often v-shaped; ascenders and descenders are markedly long; half-uncial a occurs in a run-over; US in ligature at line-end. The recto is practically illegible except for the beginning where Lc 24.24 can be deciphered; therefore, the manuscript did not contain the continuous text of the Apocalypse.
