VMs: Re: VMS numbering systems hypotheses...

Here's a question for you: do Currier Hand A and Currier Hand B both have
pages where they write alternate lines, or is it a practice only carried
out by one of them?

Also: do you know of any evidence in other (roughly contemporaneous) copied
manuscripts of lines having been copied out of order?

My suggestion about alternate lines referred to certain pages of Currier B only.

I put this forward as speculation: I am by no means certain of it,
and now that I have the entire copyflo I am looking at other
explanations for the flow of the lines. It is very common for
interlinear glosses to be written in the order I have suggested -
i.e. you would write a page of Latin and then insert a vernacular
translation in between the lines.
