the scribe has a simple secretary graph of 'a'.
he also uses a more complicated horned version more akin to his upper case rendition.
upper case 'A' with long, thick approach stroke which intrudes into the space for the next line.
the initial letter of the folio which also demonstrates the exaggerated approach stroke to the graph.
as with 'a' the scribe has a number of distinctive variations for the 'd' graph. Looped 'd' seen here usually sports an extended tail (as in version 2) when it is the final letter of a word.
a more angular version of the lower lobe.
unlooped 'd' is also used frequently.
the two versions side by side.
tailed 'g' graph seen here with following 'i'.
a rounder version of the same graph.
for most of the scribe's graphs he seems to alternate between rounded and spikey formations.

a fairly conventional graph compared with others of this scribe! In this example the head is open.
a loop at the top of the stem and a tail extending clockwise from curved limb to form a loop.
on two occasions on this folio where 'h' is in a 'th' or 'ght' combination, the scribe adds a curving stroke above the combined letters.
the addition of a curving stroke above the combination 'th'.
modern 'r' is rarely used, but here in final position, it has a flourish..
'z'-shaped 'r' is used in all positions.
upper case 'R' with dramatic approach stroke beginning above the graph.
'z'-shaped 'r' in final position with otiose hairline extension.
long 's' is used initially and in medial position.
a really neat version of the scribe's horned kidney 's'.
presumably the scribe's version of sigma 's' in final position. This graph can get totally out of hand and produces confusion when the upward extension intrudes on letters above.
a more confused example of version 2.
occasionally the graph has a long approach stroke which is vertical.
upper case 'W' at the beginning of a line.
as with most other graphs of this scribe, the tails of 'y' show a good deal of variation.
'y' with competition from the ascending stroke from sigma 's' on the line below.
|Upper case oddities|
upper case 'N' with descender of 'I' from the line above bisecting the graph.
