all upper case 'A's on the folio examined are of this variety.
unlooped secretary 'd' is used almost exclusively on the folio examined. However, see version 3.
hairline otiose strokes are added to several graphs in final position.
very occasionally the scribe uses a looped 'd'. However, tailed 'd' is used in final position.
the crescent-shaped hook on the scribe's 'g' gives this scribe his name.
'g' in final position with long tag descending from the horizontal slash.
occasionally instead of adding the hook to the end of the tail of 'g', the scribe turns the tail counter-clockwise.
'h' has a foot at the base of the stem and the extension from the limb barely descends below the line.
the scribe uses a hairline tail-stroke to extend from the limb and turns it counter-clockwise.
'h' after 's' is crossed.

modern 'r' seems to be used mainly in initial and medial positions.
'z'-shaped 'r' is used in all positions and always with curving otiose stroke from the bottom left of the graph.

long 's' is used in initial and medial positions. The stem is thick but tapers below the line. The head-stroke is fine.
kidney-shaped 's' is used in final position and almost always has a fine otiose stroke attached.
the angle of long 's' may be seen in this example.
'w' is of the two 'v' variety with single lobe to the right.
this 'W' occurs after a punctus and varies from the lower case in size only.
within the body of the text, this upper case 'W' is also used when it occurs on the top line.
the scribe has two variants of 'y', this one with waving tail which may have a hooked appearance, as here, or a wavy descent as in version 4.
the scribe also has a 'y' with short straight tail descending at an angle from the body of the graph. 'y' is almost always dotted.
