|Palaeography:||CISP: The lettering is Insular half-uncial. The drawing provided in Petrie/1878, Plate XXXII does not encourage trust in its details. Nonetheless there are a number of examples of A's with squarish bows, a closed minuscule E and a D with an ascender which bends to the left over an open bow.|
