Script Commentary

Script is by two distinct hands, neither very calligraphic: ligatures of ae, ri, te, ti occur; specially remarkable is the use of a ligature of uncial R after a letter with a bow; the cursive ligature cc occurs often in 'ecclesia'; g has a compressed half-uncial form; l is often broken; z is 2-shaped as in the MS of Canons, Verona 61 (59) saec. VII–VIII.
