Script Commentary

Script is an expert bold uncial, with the shaded portion of letters accentuated; the bow of uncial A is artificially ornamental; the tail of G is finished by a thick triangle; the upper bow of B is small; T at line-ends sometimes rises above the head-line. Many ligatures at line-ends. Numerous corrections in contemporary smaller uncial; two and a half lines in Anglo-Saxon script (saec. IX) on fol. 49v. Some added neumes occur on fol. 44v.
