single compartment 'a' used throughout. The scribe's hand is very even and there is little variation in letter form.
the second 'a' graph in this word.
single compartment upper case 'A' at the beginning of a line.
the first word of the folio so a slightly bigger graph.
the initial 'd' of this word. Looped 'd' is used throughout.
the first word of the rubric in the hand of the scribe and the ink of the text.
upper case letter at the beginning of a line.
the scribe's hand is neat and compact. There is little variation in any of his graphs.
double compartment 'g' is used throughout. There is generally an overhang from the stroke at the right side of the lower compartment which is square in appearance.
marginal Latin gloss.

the majority of the scribe's 'h' graphs are as in the example here. The head-stroke is rounded, the limb extends from the shoulder in a thick curve followed by a hairline to extend the stroke and pressure from flattened quill to form a finishing dot.
almost the only example on this folio of 'h' which does not finish the tail as in version 1 above. The head-strokes descend at an angle here rather than the usual rounded form.
the upper case letter is the same as the lower case example.
'ght' combination. The only other example apart from version 2 where the tail-stroke does not end with a dot.
modern 'r' is used in initial and medial positions.
long 'r' is used in final position, sometimes, as here, with flourish.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o'.
kidney 's' is always used in final position.
the only 8-shaped 's' on this folio occurs in the Latin rubric.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
where 'ss' is used, the first graph is always shorter than the second.
there is very little variation in the scribe's loop-headed 'w' graph.
occasionally the two limbs of the graph are not so close together and the second limb stands a little higher than the first.
the initial letter of the line so it could be the scribe's upper case graph. It is exactly the same as the lower case examples.
again the 'y' graph is very consistently formed.
the first letter of the line so perhaps the upper case version. Again, there is no difference between upper and lower case versions.

a distinctive hairline approach to the short angled stroke which initiates the descender.
the stem is thick but tapers as it descends.
|Upper Case Letters|
'I' has the same hairline approach to the angled head-stroke as the scribe's thorn graph.
both lower and upper case 'P' also have the hairline approach stroke to an angled head-stroke before scribing the descender.
