Script Commentary

Script is a natural but not very careful uncial of a late type: the lower bow of B is distinctly protruding; the bow of uncial Q is often a long well-shaped oval; the lower left limb of X turns in; Y is dotted. Marginalia in contemporary cursive, some arranged in the form of a triangle (see p. 77, 103, 110, 133, etc.). An Irish reader whose hand is also seen in F. 60 sup. (CLA 3.337) made a cross and Z-like sign opposite many passages in the first part of the MS.
