most upper case 'A's are just a larger version of the lower case graph.
the scribe also has this more elaborate 'A' in his repertoire.
'd' has a squarish body with curled head to the second descending stroke..
here the descending stroke to the right of the graph is ligatured with 'e'.
'g' is always double compartment with rounded upper and a triangular lower with point at the left.
the lower lobe of 'g' is frequently smaller and appears to be squashed.
the stem of 'h' has an angled foot. A hairline joins the stem to the shoulder and the limb is straight, ending just below the foot of the stem.
modern 'r' is used in all positions, initial, medial and final.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used after 'o' and round-bodied graphs.

long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
kidney 's' is used in final position.
occasionally a sigma 's' may be found in initial position.
'w' is usually open at the head and has a 'B'-shaped element to finish.
most 'y's are dotted. The tail-stroke returns counter-clockwise at an acute angle.
occasionally the fork of 'y' drops below the level of the lower line of surrounding graphs.
