the image shows the relative height of 'a' with upper lobe above the level of surrounding letters.
an isolated secretary form of 'a'.
squarish lower lobe of upper case 'A'.
looped 'd' used throughout. There is a hairline stroke to close the upper portion of the lobe.
upper case 'D' with remnants of 'B' from the line above and the top of 'A' on the line below.
'g' shown here with following letter. The top lobe of 'g' usually stands above the level of surrounding letters and may be a defining feature of this hand.
to show the relative position of 'a' and 'g' in relation to the letters around.

the stem of 'h' often has an angled foot at the base of the stem. The head-stroke is open.
the tailstroke of 'h' sometimes flicks round counter-clockwise to finish.
'h' is crossed after 'g'.
long 'r' used initially and in final position. Also used medially.
the fork of 'r' occurs at the base level of surrounding graphs.
'z'-shaped 'r' used after 'o'.
sigma 's' used alongside long 's' in initial position. Also used in final position.
initial long 's'.
example to show the size of 'w' compared with surrounding letters.
both limbs of 'w' may have angled feet.
'y' is often dotted. The tail is usually thin and curves back under previous letters.
the length of the tail varies. Here the graph is an upper case one.
as well as a looped approach stroke similar to the one in the example of Hand A in this manuscript, Hand C's 'I' has a triangular protuberance on the left side of the stem.
the hook at the head is sometimes closed.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn with approach stroke to the stem of the graph.
the lobe sits high on the stem.
yogh which also has an approach stroke to the head-stroke of the graph.
the scribe uses two different forms of upper case 'N'. This is the form also favoured by Scribe D.
'n' with angled feet on both sides of the graph.
