The name was written with a thin pen in a large and somewhat rounded script. The body of æ is rounded, the a-component somewhat teardrop-shaped but rounder at the top, and the top and back were written with a single stroke. The tongue of æ is long and horizontal, and the hook is rounded and branches from the shoulder of the æ-component and so rises above cue-height. The back of d rises above cue-height but is relatively short and concave down. The descender of wynn is very short. A minim and short horizontal foot are found on i. The same scribe may well have written three other short scribbles on the same page: e, a, and eæ. Horned e was used for these, as was a rounded semi-Caroline a, and the same rounded form of æ.
