Script Commentary

Script is a strong, not very regular uncial of a later type: Y is V-shaped; is made of three strokes, the form often resembling O with a stem above, recalling Paris Lat. 12205 (Regula Patrum, etc.) and the Oxford Gospels of St Augustine (CLA 2.230); the bow of R is low and almost touches the base line; LL run together.
