Script is a well-formed Rustic capital with marked contrast between the thick and thin strokes: A has no bar; B is tall with the upper bow very small and the lower protruding; D, M, and N are broad; E and F are easily confused; H has the form found in capitalis Quadrata; U is pointed as in capitalis Quadrata. Uprights have a thick sinuous base, recalling brush technique.
