Script Commentary

Script is an expert, calligraphic half-uncial recalling the Ravenna Ambrosius (CLA 4.410 ab): a is closed and approaches the uncial form; N has a characteristic form with the first upright going below the line and the middle stroke sagging somewhat; the top of t is a delicate line; letters have a general inclination to the left. Marginal summary in contemporary expert sloping half-uncial.
