Dum cecus ducit cecum ambo in foueam caduntO.10.294: This line is written in the right margin. It is divided after ambo, and a red parasign precedes the second line of text.
secum[c]ecumR.10.297: This slip (secus for cecus / caecus) cannot be owed to the scribe's
own pronunciation of Latin (in which the voiceless velar plosive /k/ of classical phonology
would have been rendered, as was conventional in ecclesiastical Latin, as the voiceless
palato-alveolar affricate /č/). Instead, this mental lapse reveals momentary confusion
with English phonology, where initial <c> often represented the voiceless alveolar
fricative /s/. No other B copyist makes this mistake.
