Script Commentary

Script is an expert Anglo-Saxon minuscule in which R is more frequent than r and uncial is the rule; g is flat-topped and elongated and has a somewhat bulging middle; f, r, and extend below the line quite as much as p and q. In the lemmata majuscule A and S are the rule, and both forms of d occur.
