Script Commentary

Script is rapid Rustic with some cursive elements: A not barred; E, like F, often rises above the other letters as in later Rustic manuscripts; noteworthy is the form of G with the tail swung to the right; O is narrow; Q is cursive; S is narrow and made in three strokes; U is broad and roundish. A Greek note is added in the upper margin of fragment a and contains the date 115.
