|Contents||Hieronymus, In Psalmos (7–133).|
Script is an easy, graceful Italian type of uncial with occasional intrusion, as by inadvertence, of half-uncial elements, e.g. half-uncial a, d, Ʒ (fol. 15v, l. 18); the eye of uncial E is closed, uncial H has a marked finial, N is broad, S is top-heavy; many ascenders have a horizontal fore-stroke. A contemporary corrector neatly entered at the end of Psalms +℞ crossed through, which probably stands for 'recognovi'. Another contemporary hand wrote 'EMENDAVI' under the quire signature on fol. 106v. A marginal entry on fol. 112 in small, sloping contemporary uncial has the ancient abbreviations for 'inter' (ł) and 'tio' (ꝰ).
