Script Commentary

Script is a peculiar, not very expert type of Irish majuscule verging on minuscule, written by a scribe not native to the Irish manner—it bears some resemblance to the script of the Codex Usserianus Primus (CLA 2.271) and that of the Ambrosian MS of Orosius described below (CLA 3.328): d is normally half-uncial; both forms of N occur; r and are half-uncial. Marginal corrections in the script of the text, some by later hands, and a number of entries in North Italian tachygraphic notes are seen on foll. 8, 13, 17v, 23v, 39v, etc.
