Lectional signsparagraphos (beneath lemma in l. 9); high stops; lemmata in ekthesis; trema; many misspellings; some corrections; iota adscript capriciously written.
Handmedium to fair-sized, informal, round, upright, generally bilinear, somewhat irregular though proficient, closely spaced, written with a thin pen and executed quite rapidly although the letters are usually separated and written in several strokes; some letters are decorated with serifs and hooks and ? with a long horizontal below the line); most uprights are curved and many strokes with the letters overlap each other, so that the script seems irregular and "dancing"; although the hand has several cursive elements, it is definitely literary and cannot be considered cursive (as in ed. princ.).
