Script Commentary

Script is a well-formed uncial of a late type: the stem of Y is made by continuing the right branch; fol. 113v has the Capitula in half-uncial with occasional intrusion of uncial B and G; the trick of using capital DE in uncial chapter-headings seems a characteristic of North France (cf. CLA 5.574).
