  1. Thanks for including this, Peter. Not only did I have the opportunity to look at that variant again (died vs. suffered); I also didn't know that you could put an abbreviation for και in the middle of a word (δικαιοσυνη). Where is the picture from?

    1. “ἔπαθεν”, “ὑπὲρ ὑμῶν, ὑμῖν”, “τὰς ἁμαρτίας ὑμῶν”… You can find the original manuscript in my small private library, and a full picture here. (I think we have διϗ / οσύνῃ because we have δικαί / ους and δικαιοσύνην, see col. c, l. 17 & 8 from bottom.)

  3. The picture is from the Rabbula Gospels (from wikipedia!!)

  4. The kai compendium is due to δικαί being line-end. Codex Vaticanus scribe(s) were rather creative in right-justifying the columns. It shouldn't have been that hard with scripta continua, but they nevertheless resorted to all sorts of additional tricks, such as this one.
