Script is a pointed Insular minuscule with various cursive elements; it resembles certain hands in Vatic. Pal. Lat. 235 (CLA 1.87) and is probably the work of a Northumbrian scribe schooled in the Irish tradition: g often resembles an elongated s; the cross-stroke of T sweeps upward above the following letters; z resembles a recumbent y and is mostly below the line; uncial A, and uncial M are found at the beginning of words; ligatures are frequent: in en and er the e sometimes has the reversed lower bow (see CLA 2.123); in em and en at line-ends m and n hang sideways below the line (see CLA 2.147). Contemporary marginalia by the Merovingian scribe of the first part.
