Script Commentary

Script is a bold and heavy but well-formed uncial: the bow of uncial A often hangs above the base line; the lower bow of B is open; is made with three strokes; the top stroke of B, C, uncial E, and S is a mere dot; the tail of G is very short; N is mostly broad; the last stroke of R is short and low; T and I juxtaposed resemble Greek π; Y is short and looks like minuscule ꞅ. The neumes added in the margins of foll. 30 and 41v are Italian, according to Dom Beyssac.
