      Thanks for the reference from von Soden, I'll check it!

      Very roughly then... But my ms is much earlier, as it is (paleographically)
      dated from the Xth century.

      The Arabic ms is from the Xth century. I haven't been able to determine if
      the marginal notes were of the same hand as the Arabic writing. I have only
      a microfilm (black and white...).
      As to the "latin" numerals, the "X" is written as it is sometimes in greek
      or even in coptic (a bit curved). Ideally, I should post a gif of a page,
      but for that I should find somebody with a scanner.

      Definitely I will. I'll also check in the lectionaries as these could be
      liturgical marks.
