Script is a distinct type of half-uncial originating perhaps in Burgundy and found now more, now less compressed, in a number of Bobbio MSS: g is almost minuscule; n has two forms; the cross-stroke of ꞇ bends down to the left and occasionally forms a loop; i-longa occurs initially and occasionally medially (In, eIus).
