Script Commentary

Script is a small calligraphic uncial of a definite type found in a number of legal MSS, the most eminent examples being the Gaius of Verona and the Laurentian Digests: characteristic are the tall B, and R with the last stroke horizontal; R and S near the end of a line are sometimes half-uncial. In the rubrics in Rustic capital, E invariably has the uncial form; some rubrics are in b-d uncial; copious Greek scholia in sloping uncial are full of abbreviations.
