Script Commentary

Script is an awkward half-uncial, by a not very expert scribe: the tall shafts are topped by a hair-line; the shaft and curve of are strongly contrasted; the form of uncial A is striking and approximates to the uncial; is compressed and hardly goes below the line; the cross-stroke of tends to form a loop at the left; the bar of N curves. Corrections and marginalia in North Italian cursive saec. VII. For other details see CLA 1.26a.
