Script Commentary

Script is a regular uncial of a type recalling the Northumbrian school: the bow of A is low; the tail of G is small and very thin; the cross-stroke of N is low; S is usually top-heavy; the top of T terminates in a tiny loop to the left; X is made in three strokes, the top right branch resembling an inverted comma. A somewhat similar type of uncial is seen in the Wroclaw Gregory (see CLA 11.1595).
