Script Commentary

Script is uncial of the latest type: the lower bow of B is very protruding; the second arch of uncial M is angular and recalls the Stavelot Orosius (CLA 2.171); the top of T is yoke-like; Z resembles open Q, as in some other North Italian MSS (cf. CLA 4.511, 512); LL run together; horizontal strokes have forked finials; descenders are markedly spike-shaped.
