Script Commentary

Script is a careful, though not very expert, half-uncial of an old type: the form of uncial A is often almost uncial; the loop of e is closed; the bow of is well rounded, but barely descends below the line; the oblique stroke of N is thin, the uprights are thick; the shoulder of r descends considerably; resembles c with an approach stroke; altogether there is a resemblance to the script of Verona 55 (53). Marginalia in small contemporary half-uncial are seen on foll. 116 and 127.
