Script Commentary

Script is a characteristic minuscule with the unmistakable et ligature and long descenders strongly reminiscent of certain charters from Mercia; many letters are often subscript, especially i, o, and t; in the ligatures de and do, the stem of d serves as the first stroke of e and o.
