single compartment 'a' used most of the time.
a very peculiar 'a' for the beginning of 'and' but it may be the scribe's double compartment 'a'.
upper case 'A' as the first letter of the first line. Below on the next line is the smaller version of the same letter.
looped 'd' used throughout.
exaggerated backward extension of the loop of 'd'.
the scribe's tag on 'd' in final position descends way below the word.
tailed 'g' is consistent in its form on this folio.
the right stroke is curved and extends to form the tail.
| || |
the head-loop of 'h' curves round and connects back to the graph some way down from the shoulder.
'h' with exaggerated ascenders on the top line.
upper case letter at the beginning of a line. As with the example in version 2 the ascender of 'h' appears split.
long 'r' used in all positions.
'r' in final position with flourish.
upper case 'R'.
the scribe's 'z'-shaped 'r' with an extra addition making it appear more like a modern 'r'. This 'r' only occurs a few times on this folio and always after 'o'. Otherwise long 'r' is the only 'r' used.
sigma 's' is always used in final position.
although this graph looks like an upper case 'S' it is almost always used in initial position.
both 'ff' and 'ss' are clumsily executed with stalks at varying angles.
| || |
a distinctive lower case 'w' with high central loop and a head-stroke from the left limb which arches through the central loop and over following graphs.
a tortured execution of 'w'.
the 'B'-shaped element at the right is often clumsily executed.
a current form of 'y' where the junction of the two strokes is at the head of the graph and the tail is much lengthened.
'y' on bottom line with an unusual downturn of the tail.
as with 'h' on the top line of the folio, 'l' consists of both ascending and descending strokes.
the descender of 'l' frequently joins the base of the letter.
the 'b' and 'l' are difficult to distinguish and formed in similar fashion.
| || |
upper case 'O' in initial position at the beginning of the line.
again at the beginning of a line.
| || |
the hooked approach to 'I' joins the stem sometimes almost half-way down.
