Script Commentary

Script is a careful and elegant but rather angular uncial of un-Italian type: descenders hardly go below the base-line; the upper bow of uncial E is small and often closed; the top stroke of F and the tail of G are barely indicated; the form of N is noteworthy; P and R are narrow; Y is undotted; ligatures of US and UR occur at line-ends. Brief marginalia of the ninth century in an elegant minuscule with uncial elements: it is believed to be the hand of Florus Diaconus. Critical marks in the text and margin are by the same hand.
