Script Commentary

Omissions supplied in the lower margin in rough sloping uncial marked by a sinuous signe de renvoi, and also supplied interlinearly. Written in bold, beautifully formed, expert uncial. A larger letter, even in mid-word, begins many columns. The bow of A is pointed, the loop of E is small and open, the upper bow of B is small, the tail of G is barely indicated. Interlinear corrections in smaller uncial. Space was left for three lines of red at the beginning of books.
