the scribal hand is very consistent. All lower case 'a's are double compartment.
upper case 'A's on the two folios examined are in this form. There is no variation.
'd' is unlooped with the lobe an oval shape.
'd' in ligature with the following 'o'.
upper case 'D' in the gloss text.
two forms of 'g' are used by the scribe. This version, which looks like a tailed 'g' sometimes has a hairline stroke from the end of the tail back to the lobe.
anglicana double compartment 'g' is used in the same proportion as tailed 'g'.
'g' in final position with tag.
'h' is neatly executed with short tail-stroke generally finishing beneath the ascender.
upper case 'H' with foot on the stem.
modern 'r' is used throughout in all positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' is always used after 'o' and occasionally follows round-bodied graphs.
long 's' is always used in initial position.
kidney-shaped 's' is used in final position in the majority of cases.
occasionally this 8-shaped 's' is found in final position.
serpentine 'S' is used as the upper case graph, not only as a special 'S' in the gloss text but also in the general text.
the form of 'w' varies little.
upper case graph exactly the same as the lower case one.
the left arm of 'y' is vertical. The fork of the graph rests on the line.
the tail of 'y' is generally short and contained. It usually has a tiny flick to the right to finish.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently. It has little extension beneath the lobe which distinguishes it from 'y'.
on the folios examined, yogh only seems to be used as equivalent of 'y'.
