double compartment 'a' is the favoured graph.
single compartment 'a' occurs occasionally.
image to show the size of 'a' which is frequently, though not always, larger than the letters on either side.
upper compartment 'A' at the beginning of a line.
'd' is always looped and the lobe is generally pointed at the left side.
'd' in final position with a more oval-shaped lobe.
'd' leading in to following 'e'.
double compartment 'g' is used throughout. The upper compartment has an extended stroke which forms an upstand at the head, and the lower compartment has an extended stroke at the right forming a small overhang. The lower compartment tends to be oval in shape and sits back from the upper compartment.
'g' in final position with extended horizontal stroke from the upper compartment and curl above to finish.
occasionally the short tail-stroke is flicked out.
a real sense of the leaning forward of the 'h' graph. The limb and tail-stroke are angld to the left while the stem and the head lean forward to the right.
crossed 'h' in the 'ght' combination.
'r' in initial position. Long 'r' is used in all positions except after 'o'.
'r' in final position with flourish intended as representative of final 'e'.
upper case 'R' at the beginning of a line.
long 's' used in initial and medial positions with an occasional sigma 's' used initially.
sigma 's' used in final position.
the single occasion on this folio where sigma 's' is used in initial position.
like Hand 2, this scribe also has two 'w' graphs. The one mainly used in the body of the text is this double 'v' version.
a clear example of the two separate looped 'v's to make up the graph.
upper case 'W' at the beginning of a line with 'B'-shaped element to the right. On the folio examined there are no other examples of 'w' with 'B'-shaped element.
once again 'y' is used where 'i' would be expected.
'Y' in upper case position at the beginning of a line.
|Upper Case 'O'.|
