Script Commentary

Script is a rather bold, but not very disciplined, uncial. The letters C, F, G, L, S have often a small fork-shaped finial (not unlike the Cambridge Iuvencus, CLA 2.127). Descenders are rather longish (also a Spanish symptom); LL run together.


☛CLA first-edition provenance (Written probably in Spain) changed to follow second edition.
