Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is regular and careful half-uncial of a late type, with G regularly uncial: the bows of b, d, h, and m are well rounded, that of b is open; Rustic capitals are often used at line-ends when space is lacking. A later hand writing more or less the same type of half-uncial entered on fol. 246 the beginning of the Gospel of John in Greek, using Latin characters as does the scribe of the Verona Greco-Latin Psalter (CLA 4.472). Marginalia are of different periods: the oldest, liturgical in interest, seem of the North Italian type and date from saec. VIII in. (cf. foll. 2, 189v and 154v); the more recent entries are written in tenth- and eleventh-century Beneventan (foll. 82 and 245v) and in twelfth-century ordinary minuscule (fol. 246) and concern the ecclesiastical history of Spalato and Nona.
