Script Commentary

Script is a mixed Anglo-Saxon majuscule by two different hands; one is roundish and the other compressed and more expert: d has usually the half-uncial form, n and are mostly minuscule, the latter going well below the line; the shoulder of r bends low and the letter may easily be confused with n; g followed by n resembles an elongated s.
