This hand is very similar to that of QACCT 11, from about a century earlier. There are no Serto-like features, and the letter-forms here are common formal or decorative Estrangela types. Descenders (or parts of them), as in sādē, final kāp, mim, and nun, are narrow. The ālap has a very thin leg on the right with a dot on the bottom.
