Script Uncial
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)

Script Commentary

Script is a late uncial: the bow of A is low and curiously shrunk; the second upright of N is wedge-shaped; the top of T forks at both ends; FF and LL run together. On foll. 10, 53v, 54, and 142 occur liturgical entries in a sprawling hand saec. X and the name 'Iohannis supdiaconus'. Liturgical notes are found passim: those on foll. 78v, 141v, top margin, betray Beneventan penmanship saec. X or XI.
