almost all the scribe's lower case 'a's are double compartment graphs.
very occasionally the scribe uses a single compartment 'a' in the body of the text.
the basic shape of upper case 'A' is the same with very angular lobe and concave down-stroke. A waving stroke crosses the down-stroke near the head.
the cross-stroke is frequently extended into the left margin to form a loop.
looped 'd' is used throughout with lower compartment usually pointed at the left.
a more rounded version of 'd'.
another very spikey graph with 'Z'-shape to begin rather than the more rounded '2'-shape.
double compartment 'g' with upper compartment which is often diamond-shaped. The lower compartment is triangular.
'g' in final position with flourish perhaps representative of final 'e'.
h' may be scribed as here with triangular head-loop and neatly contained curving limb and tail.
sometimes the scribe leaves the head of 'h' open and the limb is straight.
the tail turns counter-clockwise to finish.
as the first letter of the line one may assume that this is the scribe's upper case version of the graph with loop created into the left margin by continuing the tail of 'H' back to the head of the graph.
modern 'r' seems to be the preferred graph for initial position, but it is used medially and in final position too. Long 'r' may also be found occasionally.
when modern 'r' is used in final position it always has a long vertical tag attached.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used frequently and mainly seems to follow all vowels. However, modern 'r' may also be used to follow vowels. The scribe does not appear to have set rules as to which 'r' graph he selects.
long 's' is usually used in initial position but sigma 's' may also be used. Long 's' is used medially.
sigma 's' is always used in final position and always has the same oblique or vertical tag which is also found on final 'r' and 't'.
sigma 's' in initial position.
within the text the scribe uses this simple 'w' with looped head.
there is a single lobe to the right.
as the first word of a folio or a line, the scribe sometimes uses an unlooped version with limbs extending left into the margin.
'y' is almost always dotted. The fork tends to occur just below the lower level of surrounding graphs.
the tail of 'y' is nearly always straight.
a tiny right flick at the end of the tail- stroke.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently for all functions. At the head is an angled stroke which leads to the descending stem.
the lobe of thorn is also angular.
yogh is used infrequently on the folios examined.
