Script Commentary

Script is a late but well-formed majuscule verging on minuscule: A and S are normally majuscule, and R only occasionally. Minuscule r resembles n; G in ligature resembles an elongated S. The wenn (ꝩ) and edth () occur in Anglo-Saxon words. Interlinear glosses in contemporary Anglo-Saxon minuscule, probably by the scribe of the text.
