Script Commentary

Script is a careful uncial, apparently by one hand, of the type described under Vatic. Regin. Lat. 316 (CLA 1.105): resembles an apple with a stem; the tail of G is like a shallow S; the bows of uncial M rise branch-like above the base-line; the second upright of N leans to the left; the top of S is small; X is high-waisted; thin descenders start at the base-line. A marginal entry in Merovingian cursive, now half cut off by the binder, is seen at the top of fol. 88v. Certain features (for m-stroke, nsroru for nostrorum,ꝓ for per, and 'nicilo') point to a Visigothic exemplar. Notae Tironianae here and there.
