Script Commentary

Script is expert Irish minuscule, apparently by one and the same temperamental scribe inordinately fond of variety: a and d have two forms; the peculiar e with the lower bow reversed occurs in ligature; m and n sometimes rest on their sides; the form of li in ligature is noteworthy. Irish glosses by first hand. Fol. 109v, originally blank, now contains a ninth-century Corbie charter and probationes pennae.
