Script Commentary

Script is a mixed type of half-uncial with numerous uncial elements: d, m, and r have invariably the half-uncial form (b does not occur in the fragment, but the probability is that it was half-uncial); A, G, and S have the uncial form; L often descends below the line and sweeps beneath the following letter; the upright of r goes well below the line.
