Script Commentary

Script is a natural but somewhat irregular uncial not of the oldest type: the bow of uncial A is pointed; the lower bow of B is mostly open; the hasta of uncial E is high and the eye is mostly closed; the two bows of uncial M seem to pull apart; R descends below the line; CI at line-ends are joined so that they resemble uncial q.
