Plain lettering carried rather quickly—that is the dominant impression of the writing of the Cutter of IG II2 478. He frequently omitted strokes and made an unusual variety of shapes in some letters, particularly phi and omega. Most of his other letters were quite uniform from example to example. The peculiarities of individual letters are described. The cutter of Adnotatiuncula EM 12962 inscribed his texts in a strict stoichedon pattern. His interlines were the same as the height of his letters or just a little less. He did not use the perfect design but tended to leave spaces before the name of the speaker.
