Written by several scribes in careful uncial, not of the oldest type, with frequent use of hair-lines in part of the MS. Half-uncial is used for three excerpts from the Retractationes. Marginalia in ancient sloping uncial. Nota Tironiana on fol. 168. The first leaf contains a book-list in Irish script saec. IX, and Irish majuscule letters occur on fol. 147v . Fol. 1 also contains the name Sigimunt in German minuscule saec. IX.
