Again, there are no Serto-like features here, and the letters-shapes are a simple, straightforward Estrangela, as in CCM 72, but the scribe of this manuscript, whether from care or expertise, has produced a more imposing text thanks to wider word-spacing and more consistent letter-forms. Note the very small size of the (East Syriac) vocalic dots, again as in CCM 72.
