Script is a curious, rather angular uncial with the strokes often unconnected: uncial A is almost capital with the bar oblique and high, on many pages the half-uncial form also occurs; the base of L is square with a downward finial; the second stroke of N is thin, as in Greek; R is open at the top, resembling a North Italian N; T has a slim stem and a distinct foot and the top loops to the left, recalling Merovingian script; every minim, even I, begins with a cup-shaped forestroke; descenders are long and very pointed. Cursive marginalia on foll. 24v, 26v, 29v, etc. The added eighth-century cursive minuscule at the foot of fol. 126v does not seem Veronese. Notae Tironianae occur (e.g. foll. 23, 27v, 29).
