D.S.S: Notes 02: Lacunae

click to enlarge


There are a few lacunae or pieces that have broken away and left gaps in the text of the scroll. These are places where pieces of the leather have disintegrated and fallen out. Lacunae can be found on pages 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12, 15, 16, and on 17, (where the lacuna is due to surface chipping) and page 38. Most of these gaps in the text encompass a word or a part of a word which can be restored from the M text and they are in all cases consistent with the surrounding text.
