Given the difference in size of the scripts between a codex and a scroll, and the freedom that the scribe of the codex had to use ligatures, the script of the main part of the Abisha scroll may even be the same hand as that of Cambridge Add. MS 1846, which dates from close to 1149 C.E. See Alan D. Crown, “Samaritan Majuscule Palaeography,” BJRL 60:2 and 61:1 (1978), pp. 1–55, esp. p. 30 and pl. 1A, 1B.
