Lectional signsparagraphos (2), used in conjunction with a broader space to indicate a new section; sign in margin (col. 2, 3), related (?) to broader space in l. 4: indication of new chapter (ed. princ.) or stichometrical sign (West) ?; consistent use of iota adscript; gives the impression of marking word-division by slightly larger spaces.
Handsmall to medium-sized, relatively formal, of the "severe" style, slightly flattened and broad, leaning forward, markedly bilinear and regular, written with care by an experienced scribe, letters generally well separated, but occasionally linked, without decorations except for very few serifs.
