Script shows pre-Caroline and early Caroline types of minuscule by several scribes who apparently worked on separate quires at the same time (cf., e.g., foll. 45v, 57v): a and g have two forms: open a and a, g and Ᵹ; i-longa occurs here and there, even mid-word (cuIus); the nt ligature occurs in mid-word; ti ligature is mostly used for the hard sound of ti. Cursive is seen on the last line of fol. 183v. Small corrections by a contemporary Insular hand on several pages (fol. 2v). Tironian Nota for 'hic' occasionally in the margin (fol. 38v). Later corrections and notes by various hands saec. IX and X; a verse from the Gospel in Greek was added on fol. 225.
