Script Commentary

Script is an awkward, imitative uncial by a hand not accustomed to this type of writing; the bow of uncial A is a horizontal oval raised above the line; the cross-stroke of N curves upward beyond the second upright; at line-ends uncial M has the triple-arched form found also in the Anglo-Saxon MSS Durham A. II. 10, A. II. 17, London Cotton Nero D. IV (CLA 2.147, 2.149, 2.187), and others.
