e scribe has many different upper case 'A's. He might adopt one for use throughout a whole folio with little variation or he may use several versions on the same folio.
this 'd' with open centre is a hallmark of this scribe. However, he can copy folio after folio with no sign of this type of 'd' but on other occasions, almost every 'd' is formed like this one.

long 's' used initially and medially although occasional use of sigma 's' in initial position.
final 8-shaped 's' with tag. The tag is an unusual feature of the hand but can be found occasionally.

occasionally the left and middle strokes are of the same height.
'y' usually has a short tail as here and is frequently dotted. The scribe usually has a curving stroke above his 'i's.
many 'y's are dotted.
