Script Commentary

Script is typical Luxeuil minuscule: ascenders on the first line and descenders on the last line often prolonged; i-longa frequent initially; o has a horn bent to the right at the top—a Merovingian feature; u occasionally suprascript and sickle-shaped at line-end; y is short and often dotted; ligatures of t with a following vowel are very frequent and ti ligature is used indifferently for both the hard and soft sounds of ti.
