Schrift und Hände

Early 10c littera carolina, very small module, especially in first half of codex. One hand.


  • Brown 9-line initial "V" on f. 2r, simple interlace (similar in style to initials in Dombibl. Hs. 137, f. 2r et alibi);
  • other initials are simple brown square capitals, 3-7 lines, for major divisions.
  • Red square capitals (with uncial "E") for titulus f. 1r;
  • first lines f. 2r in brown square capitals, followed by two lines of uncials;
  • red rustic capitals for other tituli.


Marginal corrections, contemporary and somewhat later hands. The commentaries on Galatians and Ephesians are omitted; also the commentary on Corinthians ends incomplete and is followed on the same page by the commentary on Philippians. Hence these omissions probably were also in the exemplar of this copy.
