Script is a late uncial with artificial hair-lines by three different scribes (A = foll. 1–89, B = 90–149, C = 150–189); the second upright of N is often curved to the left; the cross-bar of T has two pendant tags; E with cedilla is frequent; i-longa is used initially; FF and LL run together. Interlinear corrections in contemporary minuscule on foll. 99, 100v. Notae Tironianae occur passim.
