Text Language

We read texts from the January Menaion for the 22nd [f. 1r - 1v (8th line)] and the first ones for the 23rd [ff. 1v (from the 8th line and then) - 2v].

The text from Menaion is written in a diminutive Greek minuscule script. The initials, which receive particular emphasis in comparison to the small script, are placed to the left of the text block to indicate new sections. The text is laid out in one column, 29 lines per column.
