For IGNTP work, I'd come up with counts as follows: Matt: 2121, Mark:
2034, Luke: 2077, John: 2083. These are Greek continuous text mss; but
these counts don't account for mss whose unique G/A numbers have now been
stripped in the 2nd ed Kurzgefasste Liste since they are now identified as
part of another ms, mss which have a G/A number but are lost, etc (so my
criteria likely don't match those behind the 2361 count you cited). But
certainly these are approximate counts.
