Script Commentary

Script is a late type of uncial with fine hair-lines terminating descenders: the bow of uncial A often forms a triangle with the lower side resting on the line; the upper bow of B is triangular and the lower bulges to the right; T is tall at crowded line-ends; FF and LL run together; OS in ligature occurs even in mid-line; suprascript and detached is seen at line-end; some initials of sentences have their stems intersected in the middle by a decorative stroke (N on fol. 3v).
