Script Commentary

Script is a rapid, expert, cursive minuscule: g resembles an elongated s; 1 often descends in a sweeping curve below the line; the cross-bar of t is often long, resembling an abbreviation mark; r and descend below the line; the ti ligature is frequent, the top of t joining the i in a characteristic s-like flourish; the ci ligature resembles a q; subscript o occurs in the ligature tio.
