It may not be so easy, due to the many possible
interpretations of what is 1 or 2 characters.

Still there is a very clear 'oladabas' in the
upper corner of the page with the alchemical symbols
in the four corners (I think that is the so-called
'eclipse' page). Gabriel once pointed it out.

The Voynichese text looks like 'aror sheey' (Eva)
but is unclear enough and could also be read
as 'oror shedy' or some other possibilities.
All these words are common enough, but they are not
found near each other very frequently.
I vaguely remember looking for it and not finding
a satisfactory match for the preceding lines
(i.e. the michiton or anchiton or anthicon, etc).
In any case, if these are would-be decipherers
scribbles(*), they are not going to lead us anywhere.

(*) This is possible, maybe even likely, but by no
means certain.
