Script Commentary

Regular well-formed expert writing: G has invariably the uncial form; A has now the pure uncial form, now a form with an expanded bow; groups of letters and even whole lines of uncial occur, also E with cedilla by the first hand; the ligature UI is shaped like open q, the ligature NE shows the Rustic capital E.
