    Thanks for this, Judy. The cropped images I am working with on my computer just show the written areas of the MS, so the pagination information wasn t visible.

      |Rick,

      |
      |
      |If you look at the facsimiles on the web, you will see up the top
      something that says
      |II,<page number> followed by an arrow that either goes up and down or
      horizontally.
      |This arrow indicated the direction of the fibres on the particular
      page. It is either in
      |the top left or top right of the image, outside the actual papyrus
      sheet.
      |
      |
      |
      |Regards
      |
      |
      |

      |||This really is a very small "inflection" especially in something that
      |||has
      |been
      |||hand-written. It will be interesting to see if there are similar
      |variations in the
      |||other pages, and also if they vary between the pages that are written
      |||with
      |the
      |||horizontal fibres on top and those with the vertical fibres on top.

      |I'll save the details for when I send in the note about Page 33, but
      yes, there is a
      |significant difference in the slope of the line (at least in relative
      terms) on Page 33
      |compared to Page 32. It is of course possible to see the difference
      with the naked
      |eye, but when you see the actual numbers, you might be surprised.
      Probably most
      |surprising is the deviation in the standard variation between that of
      Page 32 and Page
      |33 (the writer wandered a lot with the pend. Too tired, maybe?).
      |
      |Since Mike is the "Keeper of the Holy Facsimile Edition" maybe he could
      give us a
      |quick run-down on the direction of the fibers on each page. That would
      indeed be
      |helpful.
