Script Commentary

Script is a curious, not very expert, uncial: the bow of uncial A is almost a horizontal oval; the eye of uncial E is closed; the last stroke of N is often spike-shaped; the top of T is yoke-like. Numerous marginal entries, some in uncial (foll. 197v, 345), some in North Italian cursive (foll. 226, 227, etc.), but most in Visigothic by a reader who made summaries and appreciative remarks (fol. 146v, et passim). On fol. 317 occurs the unfinished entry in North Italian minuscule saec. VIII: 'Florencius presbiter uiua in'. The MS was already defective in the eighth century: a Visigothic hand noted a lacuna with 'hic minus habet' (fol. 369v).
