Script is an early type of half-uncial written by a scribe schooled in the Greek style of calligraphy: A has the uncial form; b is half-uncial; d, Ᵹ, and m do not occur but were presumably half-uncial; r has the characteristic sickle-shaped shoulder found in other papyri in half-uncial script; ꞅ is half-uncial. The Greek is good round uncial showing some corrections.
