Script is very expert, rapid cursive minuscule, closely akin to the script of North Italian charters: a in ligature is often suprascript or resting on its side; s at the end of a word is short and stands on the line; t in ligature has various forms; y is v-shaped and dotted; z resembles ti ligature with a tag to the right, a form peculiar to North Italy; i-longa used initially and medially for the semi-vocal sound; the ligature ti is used indifferently for hard and soft ti. Notae Tironianae occur on foll. 35, 70.
