Script Commentary

Script is a stately uncial with some artificial features, as forked finials and hair-lines: uncial E is roundish and the hasta is above the middle; the two bows of uncial M are almost closed; N is broad, the two uprights being fine and the oblique stroke thick; the cross-stroke of T has a wedge-shaped thickening at both ends. A marginal rubric in excellent contemporary half-uncial occurs on fol. 39.
