Re: VMs: f116v "michiton"

Interesting.  I had a theory last year that did not pan out.  I thought I saw some resemblance of some characters to lute tablature and so I placed the characters in words vertically and they seemed to match a staff nicely.  

When I tried to play it it came out badly though.  I can pretty much guarantee that it was not John Dowland who made the Voy <grin>

But then may I forgot to FoLd It....naw.

Assuming that the first word in the main paragraph is indeed "michiton" (the 
scan isn't all that clear):

michi [pg 298] > ego [pg 162] = "in my manner"
ton (or tonus) [pg 486 - 487] = "tone; interval" (as in music)
