In which character set/transcription method are you working? I generally use EVA - but regardless of that, the point I was trying to draw attention to was the apparent 'feature' halfway down many of the gallows characters. Numbers 6 and 7 (below) look like they used to have an 'e' or 'i' character as the right-hand leg, which was then overwritten. All the examples below look (to me) as though the feet were drawn in a different operation from the top half.
My question was whether this might simply have been the easiest way to draw these characters when using a quill, or whether we ought to consider reading more into the way these characters are formed.
