Script Commentary

Script is a bold uncial of a French type: the lower bow of B protrudes considerably, the upper is triangular; the tail of G often curves to the right; the second upright of N leans to the left; the cross stroke of T has a loop to the left; the lower left stroke of X turns to the right; Y is dotted and its right hand branch curves to the left at the head-line, the whole bearing strong resemblance to the script of MS Lat. 17654 (CLA 5.670).
