double compartment 'a' with the two compartments not always defined.
the upper compartment is often larger than the lower compartment. The down-stroke at the right is thick and straight.
a single form of upper case 'A' on the folio examined and it is formed in exactly the same way as the lower case letter.

the lower lobe is sometimes more angular in appearance.
as with the first scribe, the lower compartment of 'g' is smaller than the upper compartment.
in some examples the lower compartment is very small indeed.
there is almost always a a small apron to the right of the lower lobe which ends in an upward flick.
'h' is very similar to the first scribe's graph but is usually more upright in appearance.
the limb is thick at the shoulder and tapers to a point just below the graph. There is not always a tail-stroke.
here the two 'h's are set at a slight angle.
long 'r' is used throughout in all positions.
in final position, 'r' frequently has a flourish, probably for a missing final 'e'.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows vowels.
the upper case 'R'.
sigma 's' is used in initial and final positions.
a tag on the horizontal extension of the head of sigma 's'.
long 's' is used mainly in medial position. There is only one example of long 's' in initial position on the folio examined. Long 's' is actually a short graph, rarely extending much below the line.
the 'w' graph varies little. The limbs are upright, the 'B'-shaped element at the right is barely defined.
the 'B'-shaped element is barely defined.
both limbs curl to the right.
an upper case graph where the limbs are longer than in the lower case letter.
the tail of 'y' always descends at the same forty-five degree angle.
the tail may be straight or end with a small flick counter-clockwise.
here the tail of 'y' is short and ends on the line.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently for all the usual words but also as a replacement 'th'.
the lobe for thorn is a separate stroke which does not seem to connect with the stem.
