Script:The main text is written in Textualis libraria, probably by a single hand.
Script notes:Much of the glossing, marginal and interlinear, is by a single hand, broadly contemporary with the main text, using a compact, angular cursive, highly abbreviated. The consistent difference in script type makes it difficult to establish whether this is also the main-text scribe using his ‘glossing hand’ but such is certainly possible.
