both double and single compartment 'a' used by this scribe.
upper case 'A' tipped with red ink.
looped 'd' with rounded lower lobe.
'd' with angular lower lobe.
this may be the scribe's upper case 'D' since other words in rubric on the same folio begin with upper case letters.
double compartment anglicana 'g'.
final 'g' with tag.
the scribe's letters sit on the line.
sharply angled head-stroke. Tail-stroke neatly tucked away.
upper case 'H' with looped extension to the left of the stem and foot beneath.
the scribe uses both long and modern 'r'. The fork occurs at the level of surrounding graphs.
long 'r' in final position with flourish probably for a missing final 'e'.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows round-bodied graphs.
the scribe also uses modern short 'r'.
sigma 's' is used both initially and finally. Here in final position the horizontal head-stroke extends into the right margin, not an infrequent occurrence.
the scribe frequently uses superscript 's' as abbreviation for 'is'.
upper case 'S' with parallel line decoration.
the pyramid-shaped 'w' is distinctive with an extra fine line within the left lobe of the letter, remnants of the looped lead-in stroke. There is little variation in 'w'.
the left branch of the letter is vertical, the tail-stroke turns sharply counter-clockwise and retraces the original descending stroke.
the tail of 'y' usually ascends to make connection with the following graph.
