Script Commentary

Script is rather stiff and regular dignified uncial: the hasta of uncial E is high and the loop closed; the oblique stroke of N is thick; O is broad and the axis is almost vertical; the bow of R comes down low; the general impression is that of a hand accustomed to writing Gothic uncial.
