Script Commentary

Script is an important example of French uncial: B has a strikingly protruding lower bow; often resembles an O with a stem-like top; G occasionally ends in a horizontal tag; the two bows of uncial M sometimes rise branch-like above the middle stem; the upper horizontal of Z is sinuous and projects to the right. Notae Tironianae occur.
