Script Commentary

Script is a characteristic but not very expert uncial: noteworthy are the with its horizontal finial, the N with the comma-like third stroke joining the middle stroke well above the base-line, the X with the second stroke like reversed s; Y is dotted; LL run together; many thick down strokes end in a hair-line.
