Script Commentary

Script is uncial of the old type, by a well-trained, rapid hand: B and are often left unjoined; the eye of uncial E is open; F goes well below the line; P and R remain open; the upper loop of S is often a mere dot; X is high-waisted and the lower left branch turns to the right; the fork of Y is high, and the stem goes below the base-line. Notes in sixth- and seventh-century cursive stand on foll. 31, 39, 115, 116, 117.
