      Very interesting article. But if all the scribal habits before the 4th c. show that scribes
      frequently transposed, omitted rather than added, how to know if the more reliable MSS
      that come later, i.e. 01 B L 33, do not have the same characteristics? Most variations are
      transpositions, syntax alteration, omission/addition. We cannot know the Byzantines
      added without the shorter Alexandrians, but if the Alexandrians before the 4th c. were
      omitting text, what is the gauge for telling the difference?
