Script in most of the manuscript is in a distinct type of early pre-Caroline minuscule, graceful and expert, written by more than one scribe: N is mostly majuscule; suprascript sickle-shaped u occurs occasionally in final syllables; in the crowded portion (foll. 179–184) the script approaches Merovingian cursive as in MS Lat. 17655, CLA 5.671. The half-uncial lines have the flat-topped 3-shaped ʒ on the baseline as well as uncial G. The opening words of a section are now in uncial, now in half-uncial. The marginal hand in neat contemporary semi-cursive sometimes completes the end of sections (fol. 126v).
