Script is a cursive quarter-uncial recalling that of the Probus and Sacerdos MS Naples Lat. 2 (Vindobon. 16) reproduced below, CLA 3.397a: the tops of c, f, and s rise above the line and lean forward; the second stroke of d often seems like an upward continuation of the first; i-longa occurs after Ᵹ and ꞇ; the third stroke of N is sometimes a mere extension of the second running along the head-line, the whole resembling Greek gamma (Γ); p and q are slender. The text of the verso, written at right angles to the recto, contains some eight lines in cursive, probably also of the fifth century.
