Roman Cursive Script


Roman handwriting. Quickly written, unserifed everyday version of Roman Majuscule, executed with a stylus in wax or with a reed brush and ink on papyrus. In the first centuries BC the letters were rarely joined, but during the later centuries of the Roman Empire they were often connected, and began to show characteristics of minuscule. (Rose Folsum)
