Script is a well-formed graceful uncial: the bow of uncial A ends in a point; the eye of uncial E is closed; F, P go well below the line; uncial H and L are tall and have a horizontal hair-line at the top to the left. Hierarchy of scripts—Square capital, Rustic, uncial—is illustrated on fol. 116. Prefaces are in smaller uncial (foll. 116, 128v). Marginalia in small contemporary uncial show uncial EE, N, uncial Q, T with superscript strokes for esse, non, quae, ter (foll. 49v, 51, 53v); seventh-century cursive marginalia in greenish ink occur on foll. 23v, 31v.
