Script is an extraordinary and doubtless local type of half-uncial with many cursive elements: a, resting on its side or suprascript, is often in ligature, especially with t; g is pinched; N and n are used, in the N form the sagging middle stroke is almost horizontal, recalling the form used by the Veronese scribe Ursicinus (cf. CLA 4.494); o is pointed at the top; z goes well below the line, apparently a North Italian feature; ascenders are either club-shaped or looped; descenders tend to turn up to the right; there is something individual about the script.
