0161 Last Leaf

UV image from GA 0161, an eighth century manuscript leaf containing verses from Matthew 22. GA 0161 is a palimpsest, meaning that the under-text was written in the eighth century but this bi-folio leaf was reused in the process of binding a later manuscript (GA 1419, a 15th century Gospels MS). As you can see, this leaf was reused twice before it came to be bound this way! There is faint writing vertically (GA 0161), as well as upside-down horizontal writing (bottom 3/4 of the page) and right-side-up writing (top 2 lines). This single piece of parchment was repurposed in multiple ways over the course of more than 7 centuries.
