VMs: Tranchedino comments...
There are some interesting characters on page 88v of the Milanese cipher
ledger (page 15 of Petr's Tranchedino_81v_91r.pdf)... if you look at the
second row of characters given for the base alphabet, there are a number of
"cc" characters with bars above them.
ISTM (from the title of the page) that this was probably for another
Tranchedino family member... interesting! :-)
There's also another "4" / "4o" pair on page 94r (coding for "quando" /
"max") from 1478.
FWIW, while going through the Tranchedino pages, I've been looking for the
two red wierdo characters from VMs f1r (which I call the "upside-down
picnic table" and the "hot coffee" glyphs). The former appears in a number
of ciphers, but I haven't seen the latter anywhere yet... steaming coffee
maybe, but no smoking gun. :-o
Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
PS: the symbol at the bottom of 100v looks a bit dubious... the code-maker
might have been playing a joke, I don't know (you decide). :-)
