a very degraded fly-leaf fragment. The scribe uses both single and double compartment 'a'.
double compartment 'a' stands above the level of surrounding graphs.
again the scribe employs both single and double compartment upper case 'A'.
looped 'd' is used throughout.
the bowl of 'd' may be squarish or rounded as in this example.
tailed 'g' which resembles the modern letter.
the head of 'g' is closed with a very fine hairline stroke which is now difficult to distinguish.
the tail loops round and crosses itself to join to the following graph.
tail-stroke may extend in a clockwise curve back beyond the line of the stem.
'h' after 't' in final position is sometimes crossed.
sometimes the limb is more or less vertical.
long 'r' is used in all positions and is the only type of 'r' in this fragment.
'r' with flourish probably representative of 'e'.
'e' attached to the top of the right fork of 'r'.
long 's' with thick stem.
long 's' with split stem.
sigma 's' used in final position.
cursive 'w' with tall middle loop.
no difference between upper and lower case graphs.
'y' is very difficult to distinguish from thorn. This could be the scribe's abbreviation for 'this' rather than 'ys'.
'y' with long straight tail-stroke.
very similar to the scribe's 'y' graph.
the scribe frequently uses thorn with a superscript for an abbreviation.
the single yogh in this fragment.
