This manuscript shows some variation in the thickness of letter-lines, and with an overall more flowing feel than some later Estrangela manuscripts. There are no Serto-like features here, and the letters-shapes are a simple, straightforward Estrangela. Note the very small size of the (East Syriac) vocalic dots.
