the scribe uses mainly a double compartment 'a' but the single compartment 'a' is also in use on this folio.
upper case 'A' with contained upper lobe.
upper case 'A' with upper lobe extended and leaning towards the left.
'd' as initial letter. An oval lower lobe with point at the left side. The lower lobe is larger in this example than the upper loop.
as with the 'A' graph where upper and lower lobes vary in size, so with 'd'. Here the upper loop is greater and arches back over the previous graph.
'd' with square lower lobe.

double compartment 'g' with angular lower lobe.
rounded lower lobe in this example.
final 'g' with curved tag attached to the horizontal slash.

'h' is crossed in all 'ch' and 'th' combinations.
strangely, the 'ght' combination does not seem to require the crossed 'h'.
upper case 'H' as the first letter of the line. The tail stroke is continued in a looping extension beneath the graph and out into the margin.
modern 'r' used in all positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' used in initial position. Mainly only used after 'o'.
final 'r' with flourish.
upper case 'R' at the beginning of a line.
kidney-shaped 's' used in final position. Sigma 's' is also used in final position.
sigma 's' used in the rubric in final position, but it also occurs within the text.
long 's' in initial position. Also used medially.
an individual upper case 'S' used at the beginning of a line.
the most commonly used graph for 'w'. However there are several variations as seen in the versions below.
'w' with looped head and single lobe to the right.
the first word of the folio so perhaps the scribe made an extra effort. This upper case graph has the 'B'-shaped element to the right.
'y' sometimes has a small curved stroke above.
the tail of 'y' has very little curve or no curve at all as here.
