there is often an oblique otiose stroke from the lower left point of the lower compartment. It matches the angle of the otiose stroke from 'z'-shaped 'r' and the fine straight tails of 'y', 'h' and yogh.
'g' in final position is often tagged with a vertical descender from the horizontal dash.
the head of 'h' is sometimes open but more often has a triangular looped head. The tail is often fine and straight and descends at an oblique angle from the limb-stroke which ends in line with the base of the stem.

in final position the tip of the shoulder stroke turns up.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o' and round-bodied graphs.
sigma 's' is frequently used in initial position.

long 's' is used in medial and sometimes in initial position.
