Perhaps relevant, again from Bischoff, p. 23:  "Other methods of marking
the sequence of quires are to use the letters of a name, or a number of
points, or even more exotic systems.  ... After sporadic earlier
occurrences, folation appears relatively often from the twelfth century
on, and from the thirteenth onward we also encounter pagination or even a
continupous counting of columns in both liturgical and other manuscripts."
