Script is an expert Anglo-Saxon minuscule by two hands; the first is very similar to the script of MS Lat. 9538 (CLA 5.588); the second begins near the bottom of fol. 47v: a is mostly open, capital A with angular cross-bar and elongated left shaft is found occasionally at beginning of a word; the first hand uses ꝺ, the second both ꝺ and d; g is s-shaped; N occasionally uncial; the top stroke of t extends well to the right; the bi ligature is formed by prolonging the bow of b below the line; tall e and e with the lower bow reversed are often found in ligature; the mi ligature and nt with the subscript t also occur. Some pages show a preponderance of majuscule elements (foll. 3, 11).
