Script is a mixture of Rustic capital and early cursive, not without some elegance: A has a tiny third stroke parallel to the first; Ꝺ and uncial E have the cursive forms which are the forerunners of the uncial; the tail of G is small and does not go below the line; H has two forms; M and N are capital; Q, R, and S are cursive, the tail of Q having the characteristic sweep from left to right; U is always V-shaped; the whole script inclines to the left. The apex is used to mark long quantity. Points occur after most words.
