Script Commentary

Script is a calligraphic uncial of a late type: the bow of uncial A is roundish; the oblique stroke of N is often slightly curved and now and then transected by the second upright; the bow of R comes down low; the top of T bends down to the left and the base has a hair-line; Z has a prancing form characteristically North Italian (fol. 32v).
