single compartment 'a' with fine flat head-stroke.
a word in the middle of a line with what appears to be an upper case graph to begin.
upper case 'A' at the beginning of a line.
a stray double compartment lower case 'a'.
looped 'd' with pointed lower lobe.
a long tag on final 'd'.
upper case 'D' tipped with red.
secretary tailed 'g' with crossed head-stroke.
the tails of 'g' vary in size. Here the scribe takes the tail back to cross the stem.
upper case 'G' with vertical line through the graph.
a simple form of 'h'. with open head and tail contained beneath the graph.
'h' frequently has a foot on the stem.
the head-stroke of 's' continues to provide the loop for the head of 'h'.
modern 'r' and 'z'-shaped 'r' used almost exclusively.
almost the only example of long 'r' on this folio, in final position with flourish.
upper case 'R' with long approach stroke.
rectangular shape of sigma 's' with long horizontal extension.
kidney-shaped 's' used in final position.
the thick stalk of long 's' with finer head-strokes sometimes arching over following graphs.
'w' is scribed in several ways. Here a small loop at the top of the left arm. This first limb is generally taller than following elements.
looped tops to the arms of 'w' and single lobe to the right.
a longer approach stroke to the left arm of this upper case graph.

the tail of 'y' is long and turns counter-clockwise, returning almost to the level of the body of the graph.
some 'y's are dotted.
upper case 'Y'.
|Thorn and Yogh|
a long stem to thorn with lobe set high on the shaft.
yogh has a long tail which may return counter-clockwise to link to the following graph.
the tail of yogh is still long but with no return.
the top of long 's' extends almost at right angles above five further letters.
the treatment of the head-stroke of this graph has a real impact on the aspect of the scribe's hand on the folio.
this is the only example of such a macron on this folio. However it is included because Hand D in this manuscript uses the same device.
