Script Commentary

The script is an ungainly, debased uncial: the bow of uncial A has a curious hairline extending downwards, the lower bow of B extends considerably beyond the upper; F and P go well below the line; the tail of G is a sinuous flourish; the second bow of uncial M is mostly closed; the second upright of N descends below the line; Y is usually dotted; half-uncial r and are used at line-ends to save space.
