Script is a stately, roundish uncial of a distinct type which probably originated at Byzantium and is seen in the Laurentian Digests (3.295), in the new Gaius leaves (3.292), and in a number of other legal fragments (cf. CLA 2.211): the bow of uncial A is roundish; B is tall with the lower bow oval-shaped and inclined to the left; the hasta of uncial E is thin; N has the two uprights thick and the cross-stroke thin, as in Greek uncial; the bow of R descends to the base-line and the last stroke is almost horizontal. Some Latin corrections and some Greek interlinear commentary. In the lower margin of the verso is the Greek monogram Ιοαννης by a later hand.
