most of the scribe's lower case 'a's have a tiny extended hair-line which stands at the apex of the letter.
double compartment 'a' used in the scribe's display script for the rubric.
upper case 'A'.
| || |
looped 'd' with pointed lobe at the left side.
the scribe's display script unlooped 'd' in an internal gloss.
occasional use of unlooped 'd' in the main text.
tailed 'g' with horned head and elegantly curved tail turning clockwise with final downward turn to finish.
the combination 'ght' with crossed 'h' following 'g'.
| || |
'h' usually has a foot on the stem.
'h' is almost always crossed in the combination 'th' where the letters occur at the end of a word.
the scribe's 'h' in his display script.
the opening 'H' of the rubric.
modern 'r' is used sparingly.
the scribe uses 'z'-shaped 'r' in most positions in preference to modern 'r'. The 'z'-shaped 'r' does not usually have a descending tag.
'z'-shaped 'r' in initial position in the internal Latin gloss.
| || |
kidney 's' is only used in final position.
sigma 's' is only used in initial position. Long 's' is also used occasionally initially.
almost an 8-shaped 's' with otiose ascending tag.
a separate left limb for this graph. The angled stroke is straight and much taller than the following 'v' element but it ends above the lower level of the 'v'.
'w' at the beginning of a line usually has a curving approach stroke.
an even more elaborate example of version 2.
'y' is occasionally dotted.
'y' with a more curved tail. The scribe's 'y's do not usually trace such a wide curve.
| || |
this mark appears over two of the 'y's on the top line. However, it also appears in other places on the folio so is not a feature of display on the top line.
another mark which appears here above 'y'. It would seem possible that it could be a macron for an extra 'n' in this word. However, see version 3.
it is difficult to see what purpose is served by this mark over 'myghty'.
Usage: wyth amyable
again there seems no reason for the mark to appear in this position.
|Upper Case Letters|
all the upper case letters shown here have an extra curving stroke within the body of the graph itself.
