lower case 'a' is unusual. The lower compartment appears to consist of a scoop-shaped stroke with or without a hairline to link back to the upper closed compartment.
the scribe's graphs are regularly formed with little variation.
two versions of a very similar upper case 'A'.
unlooped 'd' with circular bowl and angled down-stroke.
'd' in final position with the scribe's neat version of a flourish, perhaps for missing final 'e'?
tailed 'g', used throughout is also consistently formed. The compartment is oval in shape and the tail, consisting of two thick strokes, rests on the line.
'g' sits above the level of surrounding graphs because although the scribe copies above the line, he needs to accommodate the tail of 'g' to sit on the line, forcing the graph higher.
the stem of 'h' leans slightly. The stroke from the shoulder usually descends in a vertical line as in this example.
in final position following 'c', 't' and 'g', 'h' is crossed. The tail-stroke curves clockwise.
an elaborate upper case graph with several protuberances to the left of the stem.
modern 'r' is used in all positions.
'r' in final position with otiose tag also to be found on 't' and sometimes on 's'.
'z'-shaped 'r' follows 'o' and 'w'.
long 's' is used in initial and medial positions.
the scribe has a variety of 's's which he uses in final position. Here 's' is kidney-shaped.
8-shaped 's' in final position. The scribe also uses a 6-shaped version.
here a rather more elegant shape for long 's' consisting of a tapering down-stroke and a straight hairline head-stroke to link with the following 't'.
'w' is also consistently formed.
the head of 'w' is level with the head of surrounding graphs.
the upper case graph is essentially the same as the lower case version.
'y' with straight tail-stroke leaving the fork at a forty-five degree angle.
very occasionally 'y' is dotted.
|Thorn and Yogh|
thorn is used frequently. The stem is a thick, straight stroke.
yogh is also used frequently as equivalent of both 'y' and 'gh'.
